The mission of Zeeland Christian School is to provide a high-quality Christian education based on the Reformed understanding of the Christian faith. We do so as an extension of the Christian family, assisting parents in carrying out their responsibility to instruct their children in the Christian faith.
Our goal is to enable students to function to their fullest potential in contemporary society as Christian citizens who personally respond in loving obedience to God’s revealed will, who recognize the significance of serving others with their lives, and who accept their responsibility toward the world in which they live.
• Sustainable Innovation
Our curriculum is an innovative, traditional curriculum that takes best practices in education and adapts them to the needs of students in this school system. In addition to traditional subjects like math, reading, writing, and science, our program also includes physical education, world language, vocal and instrumental music, art, and technology. Our Christian beliefs and teachings are at the heart of everything we teach and in all our interactions with students.
In 2020, Zeeland Christian School celebrated 105 years of Christian education in Zeeland! When we think of 105 years, we think of the faithful men and women who worked so hard to get this school up and running so that their children would be brought up with Christ at the center of everything they learned.
The Foundation of ZeelandIn 1915, a small group of Christian parents decided to place Christ and Biblical truths at the center of their child’s academic development. They founded Zeeland Christian School in a four-room building on Cherry Street.
By 1948, Zeeland Christian School outgrew the Cherry Street campus and moved to its current location at 334 W. Central Ave.
Since then, there have been many additions, renovations, and improvements.
Today, the school is made up of more than 170 faculty and staff who teach over 1,000 students each week! Our program offering are English, Spanish Immersion, Mandarin Immersion, Inclusive Education, and three preschool sites - Creation Ridge, Central Ave., and Drenthe.
