Is your child a “soon to be” Husky pup? We want every child to LOVE kindergarten! To help ensure their success, we plan two special days to get to know them a bit BEFORE they start school. The first of these two days is Kindergarten Readiness Day on Wednesday, March 13, 2019.
To request a Kindergarten Readiness appointment for your child, register online or contact us at (219) 838-0356.
To learn more about our Kindergarten program join us for our Parent Preview Event on January 14, 2019 at 6:30 pm. To learn more, click here.
Our Parent Preview Days give you the chance to see our style of learning in real life! Highland Christian School is an accredited, professional learning community where students are challenged in faith and learning through a standards-based comprehensive curriculum, formal Biblical instruction, and personal interaction.
We are pleased to be a Project Lead the Way School providing students with individualized learning, a fully-integrated 1:1 technology program, personal discipleship and STEM education.
The difference is real! Visit with our principal, enjoy live classroom visits and observe how students (preK-gr8) are academically equipped, Biblically grounded and spiritually nurtured to impact the world for Christ at Highland Christian School. Can you picture your child thriving here?
Highland Christian School is blessed to have a vibrant, growing Foundation. Our Foundation bridges the gap between short term cash gifts and long term financial needs. To best understand the benefit of our Foundation Fund, it helps to understand the relationship between the school’s budget, constituent gifts and long term planning.
The Annual Budget of Highland Christian School accounts for our operating expenses. These expenses include things like salaries, benefits, curriculum and utilities. Constituent gifts fund projects and needs that fall outside of the annual budget like building projects, capital improvements and special needs such as tuition assistance and scholarships. Gifts to the Foundation are kept in perpetuity, meaning we do not spend principal gifts. Principal gifts are invested and an annual gift is given to the school out of earned income.
The Highland Christian School Foundation provides a variety of opportunities for parents, grandparents, alumni and friends of Highland Christian School. In addition to educational resources and professional planned gift services (free of charge through our affiliation with the Barnabas Foundation), the HCS Foundation provides the means for long term support of Christian education.
Drumroll, please….are you ready? You helped us raise $18K during our “Get 1: Give 1 Jogathon”. Because of our school community’s generosity we are able to give not 1 but 2 gifts! The first recipient of this special student-generated gift is Roseland Christian Ministries.
Thank you to each of our students and the family and friends who supported this endeavor. We trust that it will be a memorable experience – contributing to our students faith and character formation – as they learn to be generous towards other out of reverence for Christ.
Stay tuned for the 2nd gift presentation during our Christmas Chapel.
Every good and perfect gift comes from God and we are so grateful for His steadfast love and the way it changes us. Together, we packed over 150 food boxes for Roseland Christian Ministries! As Pastor Joe shared, these blessing boxes are more than food – they are a demonstration of real love, God’s love, through His people. Some of the families who receive these boxes will hear the gospel of Jesus Christ for the first time. Others will experience his love again and their hearts will be opened. Thank you for the generosity with which you shared. May many receive Him as their Savior and Lord as a result of these provisions.
We are grateful for each of you and the special place you have here at Highland Christian!
