So Much Discovery!

Elementary School​

Building Christian leaders prepared to thrive and inspire change

One of the most important decisions parents make is to select a school for their child. The teachers and children, curriculum, and environment will mold and influence a child for a lifetime. We believe the Lord has created each child with unique abilities, gifts, and talents and the Lord has a plan for their lives. It is our desire to partner with parents to instruct and teach your children to love, follow, and serve the Lord. The integration of faith and learning enables students to develop a biblical worldview to filter their ideas, thoughts, and actions.

Students in Harmony’s elementary program are challenged with hands-on learning, differential learning, and collaboration. Strong academics provide students with a solid foundation for pursuing higher education and a career path. Community outreach projects, fine arts, and special activities within the classroom provide opportunities for students to grow and mature.

All faculty and staff members profess Jesus Christ as Lord of their lives and regard their positions at Harmony as a ministry to Him. Faculty members are required to have a bachelor’s degree, and to understand and teach from a Christian-worldview perspective. Our teachers are all encouraged to continue with professional development both corporately and as individuals.

Harmony Christian School is blessed with gifted and dedicated faculty and staff.


Enrichment at HCS is a place where students are able to explore new activities, stimulate their minds, feel empowered, be engaged, and know who they are in Christ.

We truly believe that “play is the work of children.” Through play, children develop physically, cognitively, linguistically, and socially. Your Elementary student will be able to participate in this the first three Friday’s in May of each year. The HCS Enrichment staff works diligently to partner with parents, teachers, and students on this wonderful educational journey.

Enrichment is designed to enhance a student’s HCS experience beyond the classroom. These offerings are provided in a safe and fun environment with caring staff and instructors. There is a number of distinct opportunities that comprise the program, each providing its own unique value to the student experience:

Enrichment electives: Cooking; ceramics; sports clinic; mosaic art; legos; tye dye woodworking; and more

"In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight."

Proverbs 3:6
