PTO is hosting a Movie Night at school on Friday, November 16. More details soon!
While our State grade is still embargoed, we have much to celebrate at Highland Christian School! We are beginning to reap the rewards of our labor and thank you for your generosity as we continue to adapt our learning environments. We can already observe a continued pattern of growth and high student achievement.
We know that this growth is in direct relationship to three key changes that have already occurred as we position Highland Christian School for a vibrant future. The first change was a cultural shift as we adopted the practices and mindset of a Professional Learning Community where the fundamental purpose of the school is learning for all at high levels. The second involved a decision to focus on STEM as a foundation for student success. Through the Project Lead the Way engineering curriculum, our students are developing the critical thought and problem solving skills that will be required of them in high school and beyond. The third change was in regard to technology. Our 1:1 Technology program put a device in the hands of every student.
The focus of this year’s School Improvement Appeal is to continue this forward momentum. Funds raised through this appeal will allow us to:
• Equip (2) classrooms with moveable, transitional furnishings that support collaboration in learning. In a blended learning environment, students shift from whole class instruction to small groups and to solitary work- all made possible with moveable furniture.
• Provide continued professional development for our teachers.
• Address signage on Ridge Road. Currently, we need to relocate the brick memorial sign and repair or replace the electronic marquee.
The estimated total cost of these projects is $44K. We appreciate your consideration of these needs. If you choose to give, you may return your check by mail in the enclosed envelope, or give online. Thank you for being part of the community that makes Highland Christian strong!
Highland Christian School’s delicious Apple Slices are back!!! They will be ready to bake or are able to be frozen. Apple Slices are sold by quarter sheet (8″x12″) and cost $10. Orders and payment are due by Friday, October 5.
Read on to join the Apple Slice Party as a volunteer!
Thankful for the lovely ladies in our lives who love us and lead us in the way we should go! Thanks to our delightful PTO who provided us this moment of hospitality, fellowship and grace during “Muffins for Misses.”
We believe that extraordinary Christian education should be accessible for all children who are being raised to know and love Christ. The SGO Scholarship is a $500 one-time scholarship that qualifies Highland Christian School students for the Indiana Choice Scholarship Program. Since inception, we have awarded 101 scholarships! To God be the glory!
This year we have 15 students who are financially eligible for this assistance. Will you help us meet this need? To fund the 2018-19 SGO Scholarships, we need to raise a total of $7,500. Continue reading SGO Scholarship Appeal 2018

“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.
