Hollywood Christian School is located on the NW corner of 60th Avenue (441) and Taft Street in Broward County.
It is easily accessible from all points of Dade and Broward Counties. Established in 1960, Hollywood Christian School is fully accredited by the Florida Association of Christian Colleges and Schools (FACCS). All Hollywood Christian School faculty hold required teacher certification through FACCS. We are also members of the Florida High School Athletic Association (FHSAA). It is the policy of Hollywood Christian School that no student shall be subjected to discrimination on the grounds of race, color, national or ethnic origin in the administration of its educational and admission policies. New students are required to take an entrance test given by the school, complete a family interview, and provide the required documents for admission. Each student must also meet the academic admission requirements.
Hollywood Christian School is committed to teaching students to pursue spiritual, academic, and physical excellence by providing quality instructional programs in a loving and caring atmosphere. Our vision is for all of our students to trust the Lord Jesus Christ as their Savior and to be prepared for a life of exemplary service to God and their surrounding community. (Proverbs 1:7 – “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge…”)
It is our objective that Hollywood Christian School be distinguished as a place where truth and knowledge are taught, God is revealed, wisdom is sought, integrity is expected, excellence is applauded, leaders are developed, service is encouraged, and participation is cultivated for the glory of God.
The educational philosophy of Hollywood Christian School is based on the Word of God and Kingdom Education. The principles of Scripture are the basis of faith and practice in all aspects of the school. Biblical integration is prevalent throughout all curriculum as every part of the curriculum is taught from a biblical, Christ-centered perspective. Every student is taught that all truth is God’s truth and is applicable, absolute, and culturally relevant for everyday life.
(2 Corinthians 10:5; 3 John 4; 2 Timothy 3:16: John 8:31-32)
Every staff and faculty member has a personal relationship with Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord and affirms his or her belief in the Doctrinal Statement of Hollywood Community Church. Each team member affirms his or her commitment to live an authentic Christian life as an example to all students. We seek faculty who sense a calling of God to Christian Education, who are academically qualified in their field and are life-long learners, who love students and seek to treat them with respect and dignity, and who desire to be consistent in their own Christ-like example before their students.
(Luke 6:40; Matthew 5:13-14, 16)
Our curriculum is developed to challenge the advanced student while offering supplemental help to those students who have academic difficulty. Emphasis is placed on reading, writing, computational skills, critical and analytical thinking, technological advancement, superior study habits, proficiency in wise decision making, life skills expertise, the development of Christian character, and a disciplined approach toward the pursuit of knowledge. Physical development through the arts and athletics is strongly encouraged as well as participation in activities that extend beyond the classroom. It is our desire to provide an educational environment where students are taught to pursue spiritual, academic, and physical excellence to glorify God in and through their lives.
