HC Stories

Holland Christian is more than just a building, it's a community made up of many people, each with a different background and a unique story.

We want to give our community the opportunity to share their stories. Whether it’s heartfelt, humorous, or contains any instance of divine inspiration the story of how you came to Holland Christian has the potential to encourage and inspire others as we walk through life together.

HC Stories

The VanderWoudes

"That support that I still feel today...was genuine, and seeing a community that practices what it preaches, I can't imagine sending my kids anywhere else." Ben '06 & Kellye VanderWoude share why they value a Holland Christian education for their kids, and how it has blessed Ben's life.

“I always have looked up to Ben and his faith, and it’s just so ingrained in him because of Holland Christian--the things that he knew and how he knew the Bible and knew his faith was so different from mine."

Geenen Family

"One thing we have said from the very beginning of our journey at HC is that in our ever changing world...we are incredibly grateful our kids will experience these changes while being in a Christian setting surrounded by teachers who are rooted in their faith."

Klipp Lopez Family

"Through our experiences at Holland Christian, we have seen our children grow in their faith, ask questions, and develop self-confidence. Just the other day our daughter, Anaiah, was retelling anecdotes that her teacher had told her about how God answered her prayers..."

"When the time came to decide whether we would continue on the homeschool journey or enroll the children full time, Holland Christian met all of our kids' individual needs and they were all eager to return to full time school."

It was 21 years ago, back in September of 2001, that a 13-year-old Kirk Cousins ’07 walked through Holland Christian School's doors for the first time, little knowing how much his life would change.

Jerry Vreeman

“I am so grateful to have specific memories of teachers, administrators, and school-associated parents outside of my own who cared about me and invested time to encourage me, or—more importantly sometimes—held me accountable.”
