Our History: Dedicated to Christian Education

Established in 1917, Hudsonville Christian School has always been driven by the vision of Christian education and its profound impact on building God’s Kingdom within our community.

The Reformed Tradition

Hudsonville Christian School was founded by the collaboration of the First Christian Reformed Church (Hudsonville) and the Society for Christian Education, comprising churches from the Reformed Church of America and Christian Reformed Church denominations. Together, they aimed to create an academic environment that:

  • Unifies faith and learning
  • Cultivates lives that honor God and serve others
  • Empowers the community to transform and shape culture for Christ

Today, HCS embraces an interdenominational approach, with our diverse families representing 80+ area churches spanning various denominations.

Growth Through God's Provision

When HCS opened its doors in 1917, we welcomed ninety students. Today, our student body exceeds 1,100. Throughout the years, our facilities have expanded as a testament to God’s faithfulness.
