Hampton Park Christian School

Our mission at Hampton Park Christian School is to partner with parents and churches in growing young people in Christ-likeness.
We do this by educating and discipling the whole student.
What does that look like here? It means taking an interest in the head, heart, and hands of each student.
We want to develop minds that seek and value truth, hearts of love for God and others, and hands of service-toward each other and our community.
Educating young people is about so much more than just a list of checkboxes, memorizing a certain body of knowledge, and graduating students who look and sound just so.
We want to get to the heart of each student-what motivates them and why they should learn at all. The Gospel drives us; and love, truth, and service-our core values-help us live out the Gospel and guide all we do.

School Reviews

I researched several Christian schools for my daughter this past year. I wanted a school with high academic ratings, gifted teachers, and a Biblically based curriculum, but the most important criterion for me, was that my daughter be surrounded by genuinely Godly people. Dr. Priest, Mrs. Murr, Mrs. Shoemake, of the administration staff, along with teachers, Miss Shaw, Mrs. Wynn. Mr. Lehman, Mr. Thompson, and Mrs. Rivera, to name a few, are those such people. All parents want their children to succeed in whatever career path they may choose, but the most defining trait of a person is their character, their core values and beliefs, which are based in faith. These administrators and teachers share God's message of grace by encouraging integrity, Godly principles, and critical thinking, all while pursuing God's best for their students. Hampton Park Christian School is a wonderful blessing to both students and parents!

HPCS is truly a wonderful school. My children are thriving here! The teachers really care, the facilities are top-notch, and I couldn't be happier with the atmosphere. If you're looking for a school with strict rules and over-reaching expectations, this is not your place. However, if you're looking for a school that cares about the hearts of students, then you should at least stop by campus and check it out for yourself.
