“Stewardship is not about raising money; it’s about raising Christians who willingly trust God.” – Unknown
When it comes to a willing trust in God, education is not incidental. That’s why HCS pursues partnership with parents who are already following Christ and raising their children to willingly trust God as well.
Our children must know that God is the source of all truth and that He alone is worthy of our time, talents and resources.
If you are looking for guidance as you plan for your family’s future, Barnabas Foundation may be able to help. Take a look at how they serve families and the benefits they bring to yours.
Because of Highland Christian School’s partnership with the Barnabas Foundation, their services are available to you, free of charge.

It’s time to gear-up for the the Get 1: Give 1 Jogathon! The Get 1: Give 1 Jogathon is an opportunity for students to participate in the joy of getting & giving. We are raising money to buy a Gaga Ball pit for the HCS playground but we ALSO want our students to experience the joy of charity!
Half the money students raise will be used to purchase a Gaga Ball Pit for Highland Christian School. The other half will be given to an area Christian organization that serves children. (SHHHH! We know who this will be but are keeping it a secret until the gift is ready to give!)
Students will predict how many laps they are able to walk/run in the time they are given. They will then ask friends and family to sponsor them! (Enter Your Pledge Online)

When the Highland Community Foundation launched their “Highland Has Art” initiative last Fall, we knew we wanted to be involved! We went to work right away, designing an all school community art project.
This Fall, students at Highland Christian School will work together to create an Art Bench for our playground. Inspired by the “Buddy Bench” concept, we decided to focus on the AMAZING individuality of each student that God has created and called into our learning community and the gift of community we each receive as we use our individual abilities for the good of others. Using their fingerprints as the tool for design, each students’ fingerprints will be embedded in a design created by our advanced art students.
When completed, this art bench will be installed on our K-8 playground. We hope it will become a gathering place where students will connect with others, interact and grow. This project is one of three iniatives Highland Christian School has launched to support positive playground relations.
We wish to thank the Highland Community Foundation for providing the primary funding for this initiative. Student collaboration will be guided by our art teacher, Mrs. Lauren Evers, our Junior High Bible teacher, Mrs. Vicki Huizenga, our Librarian, Mrs. Judy Zandstra and our Development Director, Miss Jodi Lineburg.
