Christ-Centered Education 

Are the Christian and moral values you are teaching at home reinforced at your child's school? At HCA, our students do more than learn Bible verses and go to chapel. They get to watch authentic relationships with Christ lived out by respected adults. They get to learn about their purpose in God's world while excelling in academics. They get to see a partnership among their family, church, and school. They get to be who God created them to be without fear of being criticized for it.

Students experience the Crusader Difference: Love God, Love Others, Love Country.


HCA Leadership and History

HCA FounderHendersonville Christian Academy is an important ministry of Bible Baptist Church. The church was founded in 1969 by Pastor Carl Frensley who then began the school ministry in 1977 with a vision to offer families a Christian alternative to public schools. 

In 2023, the church called Pastor Aaron Snodderly to be its pastor. Pastor Aaron was an evangelist for 20 years and also served as Executive Director of the Tennessee Independent Baptists for Religious Liberty before being called to pastor at Bible Baptist. He and his wife, Brenda, are excited about doing great things for God with the people of Bible Baptist and Hendersonville Christian. As he frequently says, “The future is always bright if we follow the Son.” Under his leadership and vision for growth, the church seeks to build a vibrant fellowship that reaches our community with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. 

Mrs. Amber Mungle, Head of School, has served at HCA since 2005. Because she began as a high school English teacher and coach before moving into administration, Mrs. Mungle's passion for high academics, her love for students, and her relatability with teachers shines through as Head of School.  She holds a bachelor’s degree from Tennessee Temple University in secondary education in the areas of speech communications and English as well as a master’s degree from Liberty University in teaching and learning. 

"The amazing educators (my own parents included) who have poured into me throughout life will never know their trickle influence in the lives of my favorite humans: HCA students. When my husband Jackson and I had our son in 2021, my passion for partnering with parents heightened to make me an even stronger educator because now I can empathize with parents at a different level. I am excited about the bright future of HCA while still honoring the traditions of the past. I would love to tell you more about this great school community where you too can feel you belong."
