What Former Students Say

"I am one of the first students to graduate from Helderberg Christian School. I’m very thankful for this school, it put my education level far beyond normal. HCS prepared me for college in several different ways, for starts, many of the core classes that are required for every college student, I found easier than normal. Secondly the course load that HCS’s curriculum applies to the students may appear large at times; it however, prepared me for the larger course work that a college student faces. Finally, the Biblically based curriculum that is taught helped to see and understand what information is true when I went to college. I am very grateful this school that is following God’s will to help better educate kids. ."

"I graduated from Helderberg Christian School in 2018. Since then, I have completed a year at Hudson Valley Community College, and will graduate from there in the Spring of 2020 with an Associates Degree in Liberal Arts, and a track in English. After HVCC, I plan to transfer to a four-year college in the Fall of 2020. Being at HCS helped me to not only succeed in high school, but it helped me transition into my college career. Academically, HCS is sound. Another factor I regard highly is the spiritual growth I underwent throughout high school. Starting off every day worshipping as a school, memorizing scripture together, and then having Christian-based curriculum to further solidify my beliefs really allowed me to take my faith to the next level. At HCS, teachers invest themselves in their students. Teachers I had saw my potential and allowed me to grow at my own pace, without letting me fall behind,and helped me figure out exactly what works best for my personal academic growth. As a student who transferred to HCS from public school in seventh grade, I know exactly what each is like, and am extremely grateful I had the opportunity to graduate from here. I can honestly say I would not be where I am today, spiritually or academically, without Helderberg Christian School. "

“Attending HCS for eight years has awakened my passion for music. Coming in everyday and being able to play with a band was a dream come true. Mike Collins offered to give me my first guitar lessons and I haven't put the guitar down since! “
