Academics

Harvest Hills Christian School strives to maintain high academic standards, as each student’s educational experience is challenging, demanding, and rewarding.  We are uniquely qualified to provide a top-quality Christian education for children and young people.

Pledge

  • We use the finest curriculum available:  Bob Jones University Press and A Beka Publications.
  • A.C.E. (Accelerated Christian Education) courses are offered at times as electives.
  • All courses are taught in a traditional classroom setting—with full-time teachers.  We do not teach DVD or video courses, with an adult “supervisor.”
  • All faculty members are highly-qualified—in both areas of training and experience.
  • Because our classes are small, all teachers can take a personal interest in each student.
  • Our Kindergarten classes are not day care programs, but rather offer thorough academic instruction.
  • All reading curriculum and instruction is phonics-based.
  • Elementary, Jr. High, and Sr. High students take the annual Standard Achievement Tests, on which they score well above the national averages.
  • High school students take college-preparation courses—so they are thoroughly prepared for their ACT and SAT tests.
  • All students go on field trips throughout the year, to help broaden their educational experience.
  • Elementary and Jr. High students compete in the National Spelling Bee Competition.
  • Individual God-given talents are developed as students participate in two music and drama programs each year.
  • Harvest Hills Christian School is a member of the American Association of Christian Schools, a nationally recognized accredited organization.

School Program

Harvest Hills Christian school is obviously not a public school, but neither is it a private school.  It is a Christian school, operated as a ministry of Harvest Hills Baptist Church—although its students do not have to be members of our church.  Because we are a Christian school:

  • Each student is taught a daily Bible lesson.
  • Students attend a special chapel program once each week, on Wednesday morning.  Parents are always welcome to visit these chapel programs, where students sing gospel songs and listen to Bible preaching.
  • All curriculum is Biblically based.  Nothing in it contradicts anything in God’s Word, the Bible.
  • Students are taught how to personally know God, and how to please Him in every-day living.
