Why would I choose HCS for my child's education?
God's Word is Taught: The Bible is used to inform all spheres of life and education and represents more than another subject area. Students are encouraged to study, memorize, and use the Bible as a tool to guide them on their journey to a life with God.
Academic Quality: HCS students are performing at an academic level that is consistently above the 85% percentile each year as measured by standardized tests given each fall to students in grades 3-8.
Christian World and Life View: Students at HCS are taught from a perspective that is based on the word of God. Students are encouraged to build a strong foundation in Christ and see the importance of a relationship with God in all aspects of life.
Individual Attention: Our Kindergarten class is a self-contained classroom. The other grades are combination classrooms that average between 15 - 24 students. Small group instruction and one on one teaching occurs frequently.
Teachers who love and fear the Lord: Our teachers are all certified by the state of Minnesota. All are experienced teachers with a love for their students and a desire to see them grow and learn. All HCS teachers continue to pursue activities that will increase their own learning and look for ways to bring deeper understanding to their students.
Children are a gift from God: We believe that children belong to God and we treat them as His special gift to us. Our job is to instruct with love so children realize the love that God has for them and their responsibility in His world.
Opportunities for Multi-Age interaction: HCS is proud to offer education to students in grades K - 8. This affords us the opportunity for many activities that allow students of all grade levels to interact. Some of these activities include Family Groups, buddy reading, and games.
Success after graduation: Students who graduate from Hollandale Christian School have done very well at both public and Christian high schools. Over 93% of HCS graduates have gone on to institutions of higher learning after high school.
Partnership: At Hollandale Christian School we feel it is important to partner with parents to instruct children in the fear and knowledge of the Lord. We encourage parents to be involved in their child's education and encourage open lines of communication between parents and teachers.
