After several years of planning for a viable option for our nontraditional students, the Houma Christian School Blended Academy was born. We knew we needed to develop a quality program that met the specific needs of those students who did not necessarily fit in the traditional educational setting but still desired to be a part of the Warrior family. After much prayer, planning, and research; God opened the door for the Blended Academy. At HCS, we are proud of the outstanding faith-based academic programs we have solidly in place. We understand that the traditional model of learning does not always work for every student and family. The HCS Blended program provides an environment that allows for flexibility in instructional time and learning opportunities. We recognize that digital learning or online education is rapidly growing across the country to meet the needs of those families. Our program will meet these needs while not compromising our HCS Mission Statement which combines a high-quality academic program with the teaching of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The Houma Christian School Blended Academy is built on a quality online curriculum that closely matches the rigor of our traditional curriculum that is already in place at HCS. The learning environment will also have a nontraditional look to the classroom. The Blended Academy class more resembles that of a living room than a traditional classroom trading desks for sofas and tables. Blended students have a similar curriculum schedule as their traditional peers, but have much more flexibility and autonomy over which lessons, readings, and activities they complete each day. They also have the benefit of more ownership over their daily curriculum which will lead to a more independent learner.
We are proud to partner with Nina Pontiff, director of the Blended Academy. She is a longtime LWC church member and parent at HCS. She is responsible for developing and monitoring individual student learning plans and progress. Ms. Nina Pontiff has over 10 years of blended learning experience.

Houma Christian School (HCS) outsources its tuition and other billings through a company called FACTS. A FACTS account must be established for every family enrolling into HCS. FACTS is the payment plan provider most widely used by private, faith-based, and public schools nationwide, and helps families like yours meet their financial obligations in a simple, convenient way that is completely confidential and secure. Because it is not a loan program, FACTS does not assess any interest or financial charges, and there is no credit check. FACTS does assess an annual fee per family; the fewer the payments the lesser the fee.
