NHA is a non-sectarian, non-denominational school, which emphasizes a strong academic program and character development based on family values universal to people of all faiths. Over 20 faiths and countries are represented, and the wide range of student ages represented at the school allows us to have a weekly mentoring program (for middle school students who work with students in the preschool and younger elementary grades).
