Holy Word Christian Academy serves the greater Austin community with Christian education, from infancy through elementary school.

Early Childhood

Our Early Childhood program provides full-time care for children between the ages of 8 weeks and 4 years old. Each classroom consists of developmentally appropriate educational opportunities based on a shared weekly theme and includes a daily Bible lesson, music, story time, arts & crafts, and learning 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…”

“The staff 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., Parent of a Kindergartener, Blue Jay, & Toucan

“My daughter started when she was 3 months old. Being a first time mom I hated to leave my baby but being a working mom you just have to do it. However, Holy Word made the transition so seamless. I could actually focus on my job duties because I truly had peace of mind that my baby was okay. I love the update so get throughout the day and any time I wanted to check in on her I received a response quickly. The staff is so loving and truly treat my daughter like their own. They have watched her grow and now she’s moving up to another classroom already. We’re so blessed to have found Holy Word. If you’re looking for a reliable, trusting, clean place for your child, look no further.”
-Brazhia B., Parent of a Blue Jay

Holy Word has been a Godsend. I love that I can drop my kids off at daycare and trust that they will be loved and cared for throughout the day. I also feel like my kids are being challenged and stimulated intellectually by the lessons they learn and all the hands-on activities the teachers organize. I love getting pictures throughout the day through the Brightwheel app of all the fun my babies are having at school.”

-Audrey C., Parent of a Kindergartener & Blue Jay

-Marilyn G., KBR & Toucan Parent

“You feel the love and care at drop off and hear your kiddo express nothing but joy about preschool when they come home. The staff members are an extension of family and we could not be happier. So thankful!”
