Welcome to Holland Christian High School! HCHS exists to encourage and challenge young people in their faith-walk to passionately pursue a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ. In addition to this, Holland Christian offers a wide variety of courses for students of all abilities and interests. This year we have 800 students from eight different countries around the world. As we train students for leadership and service we remain committed to our mission of “equipping minds and nurturing hearts to transform the world for Jesus Christ.”
Each year we gather as a body of believers around a theme for chapel. This year’s theme is "Taste and See" from Psalm 34:8. “Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the man who takes refuge in him.” It is our desire this year to encourage our students to taste and see how good the Lord is so the world might experience the goodness of God.
Integrating technology into the curriculum is an important feature of the educational experience at HCHS. Each student at Holland Christian High School is equipped with a laptop computer to enhance their learning experience. Our 1:1 learning environment allows each student to connect with each other, staff members, and learners from around the globe. This personal learning environment has gained the attention of experts around the United States as we received the “Apple Distinguished Program” award in 2012-13 for our demonstrated success for providing an exemplary learning environment and for being a center of innovation, leadership, and educational excellence. This is made possible by the excellent work of our teachers and staff. Teaching in a 1:1 environment also allows us to teach young people how to discern proper use of technology academically as well as socially.
Students at HCHS can get involved in athletics, theatre, music, various clubs, and a variety of service opportunities. It is our intent that each coach/sponsor uses their activity as a vehicle to make an eternal difference in the lives of the students with whom they work. New to HCHS this year is the Climbing Club! We are excited to offer opportunities where students have an interest as it is our desire to tap into the unique God-given interests of each student at HCHS.
The spiritual climate at HCHS runs deep into each classroom, chapel, and camp experience. Each teacher is a living example of what it means to follow Christ with all of their heart, mind, and soul. Our chapels are planned by students. Our worship is led by students. Each student is embraced for who they are in the context of a loving, grace-filled community of learners. We seek to know God more each day in all that we do at HCHS.
It is an honor to partner with parents to educate the heart, mind, and soul of the young people at HCHS. May each of us taste and see the goodness of God during the 2013-2014 school year.
