HCA is excited to congratulate Dean Unsicker on his retirement! We are eternally thankful to Mr. Unsicker for his leadership and servant’s heart that he tirelessly displayed at our school. We congratulate Mr. Unsicker on his retirement and will continue to hold him and his family up in prayer as he starts this new chapter of his life.
We are thrilled to announce Tom Shefchunas, Mr. Shef, as HCA’s new Head of School. This is just another reminder that God continues to look out for us in ways we cannot expect. He continues to graciously provide for our school by placing the right individual in our path at the right time.
