Faith Nurturing Practices

“Challenging Minds and Lives for Christ” expresses our vision to pursue academic excellence and engage each child in discovering his or her place in God’s Kingdom as a witness and servant of Christ in our global and diverse society.

Curriculum
Hudsonville Christian integrates faith and biblical values into each unit of study. We have a common understanding as Christian professionals that our whole world belongs to God.  Therefore, teachers at Hudsonville Christian develop curricula that connects faith and knowledge.

Teachers
Hudsonville Christian employs master teachers who are passionate about their faith and nurturing children through interpersonal interactions in their classrooms.  As a Christian community, they experience the joys and sorrows of daily Christian life.

Spiritual Portfolios
Every student at Hudsonville Christian has a Faith Journey Portfolio.  Each year students write a personal faith statement on a topic that varies from year to year. These statements are evidence of our students’ spiritual journey and growth as they progress through HCS.   These reflections are written each year and remain in a permanent portfolio until the students complete their education at Hudsonville Christian.  They are presented to parents upon graduation—a keepsake of their child’s faith journey from kindergarten through eighth grade.  See grade level descriptions for the yearly reflections.

Capstone Event: Markers along the Journey of Faith
One of our goals, as a school, is for each grade level, K – 8, to develop a unique project or event for students to grow in their understanding of Jesus Christ.  An important element of this capstone event is to build a community of Christ in our classrooms.  See grade level descriptions for the yearly capstone events.
