  • Holly Grove Christian School partners with families to provide excellence in Christ-centered academics by preparing students to live God-honoring lives.
  • We started in the fall of 1976 with nineteen students and have grown to the current enrollment of 540 students.
  • For over 30 years Holly Grove Christian School has provided a quality education to the families of the Eastern Shore, offering a traditional program for students in Pre-Kindergarten through 12th grade.
  • During those years we have greatly expanded, but have maintained a commitment to a debt-free school, enabling us to offer affordable tuition rates.
  • Today the buildings are all paid for because of people who sacrificed and gave willingly so that we can make an investment in the lives of students.
  • HGCS is fully accredited by both the Association of Christian Schools International and the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools.
  • Our students consistently outperform other Maryland schools in SAT and ACT testing and in percentage of college attendance.
