Holy Word Christian Academy serves the greater Austin community with quality Christian education from infancy through Pre-K.


Our infants & young toddlers classrooms provide full-time care for children between the ages of 8 weeks and 18 months old. Play is an essential part of even our youngest children’s learning and development and our daily rhythms are built around play-based, active learning while also incorporating music, art, a daily Bible lesson, and more.

Early Childhood

Our Early Childhood program provides full-time care for older toddlers up through preschool-aged children. Each classroom consists of developmentally appropriate educational opportunities based on a shared weekly theme and includes a daily Bible lesson, music, arts & crafts, and group activities in a loving, supportive environment.


Our Pre-K program prepares children for Kindergarten and helps them become comfortable in a more traditional classroom setting. Practical life experiences, play-based learning, literacy activities, math skills, and spiritual development are the focus as we strive to instill a deep love of learning in each and every student.

What do our children really
need as they grow?

Helping our children grow is no easy task, especially in this often dark, confusing, and divided world. Yet as parents, we have great hope for our children not only to find happiness, but also to be lights in their families, communities, and futures. This leads parents and teachers alike to ask the question, “What do our children really need as they grow?”

While academics, athletics, and fine arts are important parts of a child’s education, we all sense that our children need more. Our children need to have safe places to learn, loving communities to grow, and rock-solid truth to guide them through this world and into their unknown futures.

Growing at Holy Word Christian Academy

Built on Truth

Holy Word Christian Academy is a school built on the solid foundation of God’s truth. Our students receive the guidance, comfort, and peace that comes from the Bible every single day. Whether in the classroom or on the playground, in chapel or in the hallway, God’s bright truth lights the way for their learning and their lives!

Delivered with Love

Holy Word Christian Academy’s neighborhood childcare center bloomed into an elementary school and a warm, loving community of students, families, and educators. Our faculty and staff are known for above-and-beyond communication and care that create personalized relationships in our small school atmosphere

For Each Child’s Growth

At Holy Word Christian Academy, children grow not only academically, but also physically, socially, emotionally, and spiritually. Because of low student-teacher ratios, each student receives a personalized education that is built on their unique strengths and needs. This individualized, whole-child approach prepares students for both learning and life.

“…speaking the truth in love, we will grow…”

Come Visit Our School

The best way to see if Holy Word Christian Academy is right for your child is to come for a tour. You can visit our classrooms, meet our teachers, and see our school in action.

“HWCA has been a home away from home for our two children since they were babies. We are so thankful to have such a nurturing environment to immerse them in every day. Each interaction with the teachers and staff is full of love, and we know that they genuinely care about the wellbeing and development of our kids. HWCA is such a special place, and it’s been one of our biggest blessings over the past few years!”

– Laura W., Blue Jays (3s Class) and Robins (1s Class) Parent

“The staff at HWCA is so kind and caring and treat each child as their own. We love each teacher and have grown to become great friends with each one of them. The admin staff work extremely hard to provide the best in childcare. Their communication is top notch, especially throughout the coronavirus pandemic. I’ve always felt informed about what was going on with the school and how they’re making changes to keep everyone safe.”

-Matt C., Eagles (Pre-K) and Toucans (2s Class) Parent

“Holy Word Christian Academy is a rock in the wavy seas of parenting. It’s hard to imagine a better early childhood experience for our children, or a more talented and sacrificial team of caregivers that have come to feel like an extension of the family. We drop our kids off every morning with confidence that our kids will be smarter and stronger, and know more of Jesus when we pick them up. Our toddler daughter even erupts in praise songs learned in school spontaneously! Huge thanks to the academy and all the caregivers making such an impact.”

-Andy G., Kiwis (Infants) and Toucans (2s Class) Parent

“Holy Word is such a special place! The love and care the kids receive is unmatched and we are grateful that our daughter is in such loving care. There is a great sense of community amongst the staff, parents, and children that enable all to thrive and grow together. As a parent, it can be stressful leaving your child with new people, but ever since we started at HWCA, there has been no hesitation in our trust of the staff and we look forward to seeing how she is growing every day.”
-Kristen M., Robins (1s Class) Parent

“I have been a proud HWCA parent for over 3 years. Enrolling both of my sons at Holy Word Christian Academy was the best decision. HWCA teachers are caring and loving, and they are communicative and respectful. My sons love going to HWCA; my youngest runs into a classroom every morning! Finding a community for not only your kids but also for parents is difficult. Yet, HWCA became my family’s community. Most importantly, I truly appreciate watching my sons grow in their faith. 

-Yuji C., Blue Jays (3s Class) Parent
