Integrating Faith and Learning
Integrating the Christian faith within an outstanding curriculum has been a hallmark of Hudsonville Christian School for over 90 years. Our students find God evident in all aspects of their school experience, from academics to athletics and extracurricular activities. Using faith-nurturing practices, students are continually presented with the wonder of God’s creation and inspired to use their God-given talents to live for Him.
Providing Academic Excellence
Outstanding academics, presented in a Christ-centered environment, make Hudsonville Christian School a wonderful place to grow and expand young minds. Our comprehensive liberal arts curriculum has been carefully created to nurture within each student a love for learning and a love for the Lord. Students at all grade levels study Bible, language arts, mathematics, science, social studies, art, computer, music and physical education. Our intent is to create well-rounded students who share their unique talents and ideas to glorify our Creator.
Nurturing the Whole Being
We believe that each child is an intellectual, emotional, physical, social and spiritual being, made in the image of God. Because educating each facet of a child is important to us, specialized instructors teach music, art, library use, Spanish, and physical education.
Recognizing Each Child as Unique
Realizing that all God’s children are endowed with different strengths and challenges, Hudsonville Christian School offers a curriculum that accommodates the entire spectrum of learning abilities. While more advanced students may need extra challenges to stay engaged, other students may benefit from the additional help of special services. Special learning needs are met through an inclusive program providing a continuum of services administered in partnership with the Christian Learning Center.
Hudsonville Christian School welcomes students and families from all religious affiliations and ethnic backgrounds. We celebrate the unique qualities in each of our students.
Maintaining a Safe Learning Environment
The best learning environment is one in which students feel safe, both physically and emotionally. Hudsonville Christian School is dedicated to maintaining an environment in which students not only feel physically safe, but also feel a sense of belonging among their peers and freedom to express their opinions and beliefs.
Building on a Foundation of Faith
Christian education is a concerted effort between the home, church and school. At Hudsonville Christian, we see ourselves as devoted partners in your child’s Christian education, building upon the knowledge and modeling the same Christian values they learn at church and home. Together, we are challenging them to discover their place in God’s Kingdom and to live for Christ.
