process of education becomes, therefore, a means used by the Holy Spirit
to bring students into fellowship with God, to develop a Christian mind
in them and to train them in godly living, so that they can fulfill God’s
total purpose for their lives personally and vocationally.
"The Hinkson Christian Academy exists to serve missionary families and other Christian families by:
1. Providing an education which is consistent with the statement of faith set forth (above), based on a God-centered view of truth as revealed in the Bible;
2. Training students, in a Christian atmosphere that celebrates the Lordship of Christ, to serve God and their fellow-man;

HCA is a young school that has demonstrated remarkable growth since it began as The New Life Christian School in Moscow in the fall of 1991. Originally designed to meet the educational needs of local Campus Crusade for Christ families, the trustees and school community soon responded to the obvious need of a school that could be available to other mission organizations. In the fall of 1993, the school changed its name to honor Bud Hinkson, who had been heavily involved in ministry throughout the Easter Bloc countries for two decades, HCA began the process of becoming an inter-mission school with several missions participating in recruitment, financial responsibilities, and sponsoring personnel.
From its start in 1991 with nineteen children and three teachers in a classroom rented from a Russian school, HCA has expanded steadily: Today HCA has 37 teachers and 170 students attending grades K –12. In 1995 the school, with a split campus, was renting space in two Russian schools. The next fall, HCA moved into a vacant school building. Today, with the building and grounds “much improved”, HCA is gearing up for yet another move. Next year HCA will relocate to a bigger school building, offering greater facilities and even more space.
