Welcome to Holland Christian High School! Thank you for taking some time to explore our website and learn about us and our mission of “equipping minds and nurturing hearts to transform the world for Jesus Christ.”
This is a wonderful mission and one that we take very seriously. It guides who we are and what we do each day. It is also a mission that we do not do alone. We believe that we are in a true partnership with the Christian home and the Christian church. Together we work to educate and nurture each student to serve in God’s world. We desire and encourage involvement and engagement of our parents in the educational process knowing that research clearly shows this as a key indicator in overall student success.
Our students thrive in an environment that encourages them to be their best. Guided by excellent, dedicated, and caring teachers, and having access to state of the art facilities and 21st century educational practices, our students receive an outstanding education which prepares them well for whatever lies beyond high school. We view each student as an individual image bearer of God with individual gifts, abilities, and (eventual) callings in life. We are committed to providing programs for a wide range of student interests and abilities. While this description defines how we educate our students, it is our intentional infusion of God’s word into every subject and our desire for significant and meaningful spiritual formation for our students that sets us apart and is the chief reason for our existence.
While we certainly desire that our students are successful academically, we also want them to have opportunities to grow in other areas. We believe that our many co-curricular opportunities are part of our total educational program and are simply extensions of the classroom wherein students develop their gifts and passions, and where they learn many other valuable life lessons.
If this is something that you believe fits your family’s philosophy of education, then I strongly encourage you to contact us and schedule a visit and a tour. I’m convinced that in doing so you’ll see first hand the community and culture that exists at HCHS on a daily basis. We’d love the opportunity to partner with you in the education of your high school-aged children.
