HCS operates with a planned, accelerated instructional program. The faculty writes objectives for the different subjects and grade levels. Then, they match textbooks that best reflect those objectives to the students. This information is maintained in a curriculum guide. HCS uses various textbook series that exemplify the objectives in a given subject area. The core curriculum consists of the following subjects:
- Language Arts
- Social Studies
Bible is the most important subject and is taught daily. Our goal is to lead each student to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ, to teach the foundational doctrines of the Christian faith, and to encourage Bible study.
The math curriculum focuses on computation and problem solving skills. Drill and practice is used to help a student memorize the necessary factual information.
Phonics is employed as the most logical and orderly method of teaching students to read. The Language Arts program seeks to expose a student to quality literature and incorporate reading and writing strategies. Grammar, phonics, creative writing, handwriting, and spelling are all incorporated into Language Arts.
It is HCS' conviction that science must be taught from a biblical perspective. The science program is designed to promote the scientific method and give a student a variety of experiences with earth, physical, and life science.
Social Studies is taught from a Christian perspective so a student begins to grasp the omniscience of God. The social studies curriculum is divided into the four categories of history, geography, civics, and economics.
HCS offers the following electives:
- Foreign Language
- Physical Education
