At HCCA we believe that the main purpose of dating is to develop a oneness of spirt which, when achieved, can be the basis of engagement or marriage. As an Academy we are not advocating dating and would like students to be focused on studies rather than relationships. We encourage students to be building healthy relationships in a group setting. If students are 16 years of age, or in their last year of high school and have parental permission to date, HCCA encourages them to use discretion at school. That is, no public displays of affection, being part of the group, not pairing off and maintaining good school spirit and relationships with others.
