Helena Christian School is a private, interdenominational Christian school with teacher-directed classes for Preschool through twelfth grade.
Helena Christian Academy serves grades Preschool-6.
Helena Christian High School serves grades 7-12.
Helena Christian School, Inc.
is a non-profit corporation that is governed by a board of directors made up of Christians from churches throughout the Helena community.
Helena Christian School exists to assist Christian parents in their God-given responsibility of training their children according to Biblical principles.
We recognize that for Christian parents there is no greater responsibility than the consistent training of their children to the Lordship of Jesus Christ.
The Christ-centered school functions as an extension of the Christian home and church in helping to fulfill parental responsibilities, not only for success in this life but also for life everlasting.
The academic program at Helena Christian School emphasizes an intense phonics program, Romalda Bishop Spalding's, "The Writing Road to Reading," which is used throughout the primary grades.
We provide a Christ-centered curriculum in a teacher-directed classroom.
The spiritual program is approached in an interdenominational manner through classes in the Bible, prayer in the classroom, teacher and administrative counseling, a positive discipline program and weekly chapel services in which many of the Helena area pastors participate.
