Tel: (518) 499-5416
Helderberg Christian School is a coeducational, discipleship style, college preparatory day school that provides a strong academic program based on the truths and principles of the Bible.
The school was founded by families who desire local, traditional Christian education for their children.
HCS is independent and nondenominational, with selective admissions. At Helderberg Christian School, we are in the business of building foundations for life.
We do not look only to the present status of our students, but view them as ambassadors for Christ, children with a mission and purpose in which they must be equipped.
We firmly believe, according to 2 Timothy 3:16-17, "all scripture is useful for teaching and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work".
The purpose of Helderberg Christian School is to help Christian parents carry out their responsibility to educate their children with a Christian world view.
The school seeks to provide a quality academic program which is founded upon Biblical principles.
