What is the HCS community like?
With Christ at the center, everything changes! We invite you to schedule a visit to experience God at work at HCS. Our community is filled with loving, intentional parents devoted to each other and focused on nurturing their children in faith as together we seek to bring glory to God in every aspect of our lives.

How will my child’s faith be nurtured?
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, and so we develop curricula that connects faith and knowledge.
Our teachers 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.
Every student at Hudsonville Christian has a Faith Journey Portfolio. Each year students write a personal faith statement and these yearly reflections remain in a permanent portfolio until the students complete their education at Hudsonville Christian where they are presented to parents upon graduation—a keepsake of their child’s faith journey from kindergarten through eighth grade.
Each grade level also has a capstone event to mark the journey of faith and unite the class as the body of Christ.
