At Harvest Christian School our mission is to develop Christian leaders of tomorrow through a quality Christian education.
With Biblically-based curriculum, which includes the Bible, Abeka, BJU Press, ACSI, Saxon and others, in the hands of a faculty of committed Christian teachers, we provide a challenging education while teaching each student there is a loving and compassionate God who has a special plan for their lives.
HCS is committed to providing a variety of learning experiences in a loving Christian atmosphere, to prepare its students for High School and beyond.
The educational process in a Christian school is dependent on a Biblical philosophy which provides the right world view and essential truths for life so that children may be prepared to assume their proper place in the home, the church, and the state..
Our goal is to teach each child Christian living, self-discipline, personal responsibility, integrity, and good citizenship.
We promote high academic standards within the potential of the individual student as uniquely created by God.
Each student is taught to develop creativity and critical thinking in light of God's criteria, the Bible.

If I can give this school more than 5 stars I would. My daughter went here and TK and then we ended up moving to Colorado where she went to a private Christian School there. My husband ended up getting a better job back in California and as soon as I called Harvest Christian School they will come just back with open arms. She is in first grade going on second grade and this is the most awesome school I could ever imagine putting her.. the warmth kindness and love they give are phenomenal. The answer all your questions in a timely manner and get back to you ASAP. If you are looking for a private Christian School I definitely would go here

I am so very thankful that my daughter has the opportunity to attend Harvest Christian School from Kindergarten to 7th grade. The teachers and staff have a deep passion for guiding children to be better humans. They academically challenge the students while fostering in them a love for learning. From the very first day, I always felt like this school was an extension of our family. I am forever grateful for this school and highly recommend it to everyone!

This was our first year at Harvest Christian School, and we love it! The teachers are kind, competent, and really want students to grow academically and spiritually. We couldn't be happier with our kids' experience. If you're looking for strong academics in a safe and loving environment, Harvest Christian is at the top.

We just started at Harvest last year and it`s been the GREATEST blessing for our entire family. The academic program is far superior to the local education agencies. It`s a minor adjustment since two of the kids entering 5th grade but the support and love from the teachers and other staff is incomparable. We never thought we would send our children to private school, but I have not seen this level of care and attention for children in any other school. There is a true love for Christ and learning here, and it reflects in everything that they do. We love Harvest!!

Our daughter has been attending Harvest Christian School since 5th grade and will be graduating 8th grade this Spring. She began school struggling academically, but is now a straight-A student! We have been so blessed to watch her grown in confidence, experience an increased desire to challenge herself to do her best, and become grounded in her faith through the love, care and nurturing environment here at Harvest. She has grown exponentially each year and will be leaving a confident, equipped, and well-rounded young christian lady, ready for college prep classes. Harvest was the perfect fit for her. I highly recommend it to any family who wants a safe, loving, and academically challenging school experience.

We have been at Harvest for 9 years now and still love it like it was our 1st day. My first child graduated from Harvest and I'm so happy that we kept him there through Jr. High. The classes are small and he was seen every day. He did not get lost in a sea of students, and he had staff every day loving on him and praying for him. His time spent with friends remained innocent for a couple years more, before going off into public high school. There is such a vast difference between a private, Christian environment, and everything else. He also learned Latin in every grade he was there, so he has excelled in Spanish in High School. He left Harvest ahead academically and has been able to thrive in Honors and AP classes for all his years in High School. My daughter started Harvest in Kindergarten and is now in 5th grade. She is thriving as well. They both will have Harvest's Classical, Christian learning foundation which will prepare and propel them for years to come. Thank you Harvest!
