About DHCA

Organizational Structure

Established in 1995, DHCA is a non-denominational, K5-12th grade, Christian school serving the greater Decatur area. Our campus provides over 82,000 square feet on 50 acres. Program divisions for the upcoming 2019-2020 school year include the Lower School (K5-6th grade) and the Upper School (7th-12th grade).

While the Headmaster, along with his administrative team, handles the day-to-day operations of the school, a self-perpetuating Board of Trustees provides accountability and oversight with respect to the mission and policies of the school.


Decatur Heritage Christian Academy embraces a Christian philosophy of education. We consider children a heritage of the Lord and education not simply a job or service provided — it is a calling which we pursue with enthusiasm and diligence.


The mission of Decatur Heritage Christian Academy is to assist families by providing their children with an education that is excellent and which instills Biblical principles to guide their lives.

Non-Discriminatory Policy

Decatur Heritage Christian Academy admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students of the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, financial aid programs, and other school-administered programs.
