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.
