To effectively prepare students for life by integrating faith and knowledge.
Hillsdale Christian School was established by its founders to make available a school which would work in harmony with the home and church in educating young people in all areas of life–spiritual, intellectual, social and physical.
Hillsdale Christian School students will acquire wisdom, knowledge, and a biblical world-view as evidenced by a lifestyle of character, leadership, service, stewardship, and worship. Specifically, the young men and women who are products of Hillsdale Christian School will mature to loving God with all their heart, soul and mind (Matthew 22:37) - growing in wisdom and stature (Luke 2:52); being willing to stand apart from the world as “salt and light” (Matthew 5:13-14); and giving sacrificially of themselves and their resources, thus reflecting the essence and love of the Christ who lives and dwells within them (Romans 12:1).

We believe that excellence in all things brings glory to God. We desire to provide our children an educational experience that provides them with the foundational knowledge they will need to succeed in their future education and life endeavors. HCS strives to provide our teachers with an environment that is conducive to learning and with the tools they need to challenge students to achieve their best.
HCS operates on the tuition obtained from families who desire a strong Christian education for their children and from many, many people who give sacrificially of their time and resources. We believe it is our responsibility to these people and the Lord to use wisely that which has been entrusted to us.
The philosophy of Hillsdale Christian School is based on a God-centered view that all truth is God’s truth and that the Bible is the inspired and only infallible, authoritative Word of God containing this truth. As an educational institution, Hillsdale Christian School believes bringing up a child in Christ-likeness is primarily the responsibility and biblical duty of the parent. Our school exists, therefore, to assist in that education, working together with the family and the church. The curriculum of Hillsdale Christian School arises from our philosophy that places God, not man, in the center of all things. (Colossians 2:3, Proverbs 1:7)
We believe that HCS exists only because God has established it. Therefore, our primary purpose is to bring glory to Him in all that we do. We strive to be Christ-centered in all of our endeavors and to challenge our students to develop a deeper understanding and relationship with Him.
While God reveals Himself to mankind through His creation, it is only through the God-inspired pages of Scripture that we can fully know him. The Bible is a treasure beyond measure, and we seek to instill a love for it into our children. Our entire curriculum is based upon the wisdom and instruction we obtain from God's Holy Word.
