“Hollywood Christian School will become a catalyst for world-class, kingdom-centered education.”
“Hollywood Christian School exists to glorify God, make disciples, and serve others.”
“Dream big, build small, never be satisfied.”
As a ministry of Hollywood Community Church, HCS provides a kingdom-centered education. As such, the guiding principles of our curricula are rooted in God’s word as revealed in the Bible. HCS maintains a faculty of Bible-believing Christians who are dedicated to meeting the educational needs of the families of our community. At HCS we believe that all students can and will learn at their maximum capacities.
We believe that all of creation is the work of God, that truth is absolute, and that education is a means to discover and better understand God’s creative design. Education then, equips students to both understand and function effectively in the world in which they live.
HCS believes that it is critical to develop every aspect of our students’ lives; mental, social, physical and spiritual. We believe that students must be “trained” (Proverbs 22:6) and brought up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord (Ephesians 6:4). As a kingdom-centered school, we place a strong emphasis on character, leadership, innovativeness, and interpersonal skills. We also believe that education should be relevent to 21st centruy students and provide answers to real-world problems.
