From Our Teachers
I teach at Hope Christian School because of my own years as a student in a small Christian school where I made good friends who loved the Lord and encouraged me in my spiritual walk, learned from teachers who cared for me and taught me to view every subject through the lens of Scripture, and obtained a solid academic foundation which served me well in college and beyond. <Read More>

From Our Students
“To me, Hope Christian School is more than just a place for academics. It's a place to be challenged, a place to be stretched, and place to grow--not only academically, but also socially and most importantly, spiritually. I've been attending HCS since fifth grade, and I can honestly say that I would not be where I am spiritually if not for this school. <Read More>.

I want to welcome you to view the information concerning Hope Christian School. Hope Christian School was started in 2004 by the congregation of Hope Baptist Church. As the church family grew, and young couples struggled with the education of their children, it became clear that we needed to help meet this need.
Hope Christian School was founded to be distinctly Christian in its teaching and in it’s world view. It is not that a Bible class and chapel are part of the week that make the school “Christian,” but the fact that Bible truth, principles, attitudes, and morals permeate the curriculum, choice of teachers, philosophy of discipline, goal of excellence in academics, and the desire to be pleasing to the Lord. Every subject is taught from the perspective of God’s creative act and truth.
At Hope Christian School we are “striving for excellence” (
Christian education is not a luxury today. Christian
Education is the investment in the lives of our children. Our responsibility
before God to rear them in the “nurture and admonition of the Lord” (
We welcome you to come and see if Hope Christian School may be a help in ministering to your family. We encourage you to call us at 717-633-1479 to get more information or to set a time to meet with our principal and see what God is doing here at Hope.
