Harbor Light Christian School (HLCS) exists to glorify the Lord and to train children according to the Bible, God’s Word.
Thanks to the vision and prayers of Pastor Bill Mindel, Dave and Bonnie DeRouchie, and Harbor Light Chapel, the school started in 1985.
We continue because of the faithful prayers and support of many Christian people throughout the Northern Michigan community and beyond.
