We practice patience and encouragement to learn from our mistakes and each other. As students grow in their knowledge of art, it is our hope they will take these experiences and share their art to bring joy, beauty, and truth to God’s world. We invite you to come and see, touch, play, sing, dance, listen, view, and appreciate with us!
The purpose of our Fine Arts Department is to glorify our Creator and celebrate our roles as His image bearers through creative expression and invention!
Band & Orchestra
God has placed us in a world with the raw materials of music–pitch, resonance and time–and has given each of us image bearers the ability to create music. We respond by praising God for this wonderful gift and by using music that is true, noble, right, pure, lovely, admirable, excellent and praiseworthy.
The vocal music program at Holland Christian engages students in a deeper understanding and appreciation of music through the development of the God-given instrument inside each of us: the voice. We were created to worship our Creator. Singing plays a central role in expressing praise and honor for what God has done for us through Jesus.
Holland Christian’s award-winning theatre program begins in middle school and builds throughout high school. The high school program features a full-scale musical, competion-based one-act play, spring play, forensics, and a 24-hour theatre program.
Visual & Media Arts
The process of creating is a wonderful thing to witness. It is not easily defined, neat and tidy, or predictable. But it is engaging, surprising, and alive. Creating is often filled with questions, uncertainty, and mystery…and sometimes we aren’t comfortable with this ambiguity. But beauty itself is mysterious, and mystery is certainly a part of wonder…and what could be more wondrous than God’s ever-changing world?

We could not provide such a robust level of programming without our parent support groups. Our HC Music Boosters raises funds for instruments, equipment, uniforms, and scholarships. Or please consider joining our TAP (Theatre Arts Patrons) Board, a group dedicated to the promotion and well-being of the theatre and forensics programs at HC.
”I love that my school is a Christian school. I love that we share in worship each week and learn about the world through a Christian perspective; I love my teachers, how they show their faith in their teaching, and are always willing to reach out to me outside of school if I need them.
”The teachers are outstanding and go above and beyond the call to impact my kids.
”The teachers care about their students: they want to help students develop their strengths and understand that they are made in god's image with specific talents and gifts.
”I think holland Christian’s teaching staff is a huge strength. The level of care, concern, and character that most of the teachers possess is what makes the HC experience so impactful for our kids.
”No child is just a number. Teachers really know them, understand their strengths and weaknesses, lift them up in prayer, challenge classmates to care about them and for them.
