Welcome to Happy Hill Farm

Let's Transform Young Lives!

Happy Hill Farm and North Central Texas Academy (NCTA) are here to help children reach their God-given potential. It all begins with a world-class, college-preparatory education at NCTA.

But Happy Hill Farm gives every child far more than academics. Through our unique working farm/campus; spiritual development; and sports, music, and art programs, these precious boys and girls develop strong character and a Christian worldview.

Ultimately, our graduates go on to college and from there to thriving careers. They become leaders in their communities and churches ... men and women of integrity who will indelibly impact the world.

Join us to transform the hearts and lives of every child here at Happy Hill Farm. You will impact not just hundreds, but thousands of young people for generations to come!
