History:
Under the guidance of God and upon the recommendation of the Church Board, the congregation of the Hawthorne Gospel Church voted in March of 1980 to begin the Hawthorne Christian Academy in September of 1981. Grades K-7 were offered in the fall of 1981 with 72 in attendance. Grade 8 was added the following year.

In March of 1984 the congregation approved the starting of grade 9 in September of 1985, with a new grade to be added each year. In June of 1989, the Academy graduated its first senior class. It was projected that a second section would be added to each grade until 1998 when all grade levels would have double sections. In God’s timing and with His tremendous blessing, this took place six years sooner than anticipated, in 1992. In 1996, school wide accreditation was granted by the Association of Christian Schools International and the Middle States.
