"Hoover Christian School is a great school because it meets more than just a student’s academic needs. Every student here feels special—like they matter. You can really see Christ in the whole staff. Most importantly, school is a fun and safe place to be. You want to come and you don’t want to leave."

A few years ago, one of our students wrote the above about her school, and we feel it captures the essence of what we try to achieve at Hoover Christian School. Click here for more testimonials. Our dedicated and well-qualified staff seeks to provide quality education in a safe, Christ-filled environment. Students benefit from a very low student-teacher ratio, a traditional marker of academic success, and the positive influence of their peers.

Our educational approach is hard to label since we adopt many classical ideals while, at the same time, stressing practical applications and creative approaches. We believe in play (we still have recesses) yet prepare students for excelling at standardized testing (which they do). We demonstrate a conservative lifestyle while teaching tolerance and valuing diversity.

Fully accredited through the National Council for Private School Accreditation and the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools, Hoover Christian School is part of the world-wide Seventh-day Adventist educational system which enrolls about 1½ million students annually. We welcome students of other faiths.

“I like the love that all the teachers show towards each other and to the students. I like my school because the teachers have created an environment where the students can learn, have fun, and grow in their relationship with God. We also have a really good lunch program in which we are fed good, healthy meals. I also like how close our classes are; everyone gets along and all the students show glimpses of godliness in the way they act and treat each other.”

“In my opinion, I think I have a great school. My favorite part is the togetherness our school shares. We all know each other and have a special connection. I also love the school’s curriculum. I like the way this school adapts to everyone’s level. The third thing I want to talk about is lunch. It’s almost always good! We don’t have nasty lunches like the kids on TV do. And lastly, I enjoy how we talk about Jesus. We learn cool stuff about the Bible. That is why I love this school; because it’s different and special!”

Value and Vision Statement

Serving humanity.
Exploring the world Biblically.
Educating for eternity.


Micah 6:8


He has shown you, O man, what is good; And what does the LORD require of you.

Our Philosophy

HCS education process desires to educate the balanced, whole student–mind, body and spirit. “Higher than the highest human thought can reach is God’s ideal for His children.” Education, p. 18. Physical activity and healthful living are seen as being an essential part of a student’s development. A positive spiritual attitude is also necessary to prepare one’s mind to grasp wisdom. “I am the Lord your God, who teaches you how to succeed, who leads you in the way you should go.” Isaiah 48:17 (NET) This holistic approach is not meant to diminish academic importance, but rather to advance the learning process and better prepare each student to achieve his or her full potential in Christ. In this process we encourage respect of others and self.

Our vision is to create a love of learning and serving in each student. HCS wears the label of Christian education in everything we inspire in our students. Seventh-day Adventists recognize God as the ultimate source of existence and truth. We believe Christ died as part of a plan to restore humanity back into God’s image. Since we were created in God’s image, every human being, although fallen, is extremely valuable and full of potential through Christ. Therefore, Adventist education seeks to maximize inherent abilities, promote loving service over selfish ambition, and cultivate the appreciation for all that is beautiful, true, and good. “It is the work of true education to develop this power, to train the youth to be thinkers, and not mere reflectors of other men’s thought.” Education p. 17. Studies prove that the longer students are in this school system the more advanced they will perform.

 

To achieve this goal, we encourage each student to:

  • Develop a personal relationship with God and his fellow men

    as stated in Matthew 22:37-39

  • Master the basic academic skills

  • Value physical and mental labor

    as the blessing God intended.

  • Cultivate physical fitness, mental ability, and moral purity

    as the blessing God intended.


 
 

Hoover Christian School is operated in harmony with the guidance and direction of the
Office of Education, North American Division of the Seventh-day Adventist Church.
