HCA’s strings program has been developing since 2004. Under the direction of Miss Kelly Schlarb, it has grown into a large part of our musical offerings. Groups perform at most all of the yearly concerts and compete in island-wide competitions. Some students are involved in group and private lessons for violin, viola, cello and double bass. With the orchestra program, we have had the pleasure of having a full symphony orchestra to play by combining the strings from the orchestra and the woodwinds from the band.

The Junior High Choir meets two times a week and is directed by Miss Lisa Flower.

The backbone and foundational philosophy of all athletic activities is based upon the concept of II Timothy 4:7. I have fought a good FIGHT, I have FINISHED my course, I have kept the FAITH.
