Live It Out
The Bible is the lens through which we look at everything at HCS. It weaves throughout our curriculum, and worship and prayer are daily class activities. Nurturing a delight in studying the Bible and sharing about their faith is paramount for our Christian faith. Students attend and often lead at our bi-weekly Chapels and discuss their learning with their teachers and classmates. In addition, students contribute to their Faith Portfolio and complete a grade-specific Faith Capstone activity each year.
Eighth grade at HCS is about academic preparation and spiritual conviction. They focus on the life of Christ, conduct independent research, strengthen their grammar, discover genetics and explore career opportunities. Always assured of God’s design and dominion.
Academic Core Subjects
Academic Elective Subjects
This year, 8th grade students designed their own board games to help their peers learn about the Civil War. Complete with rules and trivia cards, games allowed students to learn through active engagement and teaching others. A win-win.
Advanced Learning & Educational Support Services
Advanced English Language Arts and Math programs are available for 7th-grade students that qualify. These classes give selected students the chance to work beyond grade level so that they may continue to be engaged academically and offer their unique gifts to the body of Christ.
At the Middle School, the HCS Educational Support Services team provides assistance for specific learning needs while promoting spiritual, social and academic growth of all students. We offer a variety of support for students with learning disabilities, cognitive impairments, emotional impairments, autistic spectrum disorder, attention dysfunctions and anxiety dysfunctions.
