Welcome to            Halifax Christian School

Halifax Christian School is a Christ-centered,  life and college preparatory school.

We Are…

Halifax Christian School is a Christ-centered, life and college preparatory school.

We offer grades K4-12 with rigorous, educational, and Christ-centered classes, electives, and athletics.  Our students use the ACE curriculum along with instructor specific lessons to ensure a well-rounded and educationally exceptional experience.  We offer three different diploma plans, general, college preparatory and honors.  As a private school it is often assumed our students are not accepted into traditional four-year colleges, however this is not the case.  We have had graduates attend schools such as Texas A&M, Ohio State University, University of Virginia and Virginia Polytechnic Institute to name a few.

 

Our Mission

It is the mission of Halifax Christian School to prepare young men and women to impact the world with knowledge, character, and the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  Exceptional academics along with daily devotions and prayer, weekly chapel services are just a small portion of our spiritual life programs on campus. HCS is a missions-minded organization constantly giving back to our community and nation. We strongly believe that a giving school instills generosity and work ethic in our student body.

Our Future

The future of HCS is bright, and we would love to have you become a part of the HCS family.  Please continue to explore this website and contact us for more information about Halifax Christian School.

The Orton Gillingham Approach

The Orton Gillingham Approach is a research based approach that has been used for many decades to successfully provide literacy remediation to students of all ages. This approach is primarily used for those who have Dyslexia. These individuals have difficulty primarily in the areas of reading, writing, and spelling. Often these difficulties create a learning gap in other academic areas as well.

In recent years, the Orton Gillingham Approach has also been adopted in general education classrooms, and has been very effective with the general education population. Due to the prescriptive nature of the Orton Gillingham Approach, the lesson plans target the student’s individual learning needs. It is so important to accommodate the varying needs and acknowledge the different learning styles by incorporating multisensory strategies in the classroom. In doing so, we set our students up for success, as well as ignite in them a renewed excitement and zest for learning.

This approach corresponds with our motto to provide the best education to all students at Halifax Christian School.  Thus, we are excited to announce, all elementary and middle school lead teachers at Halifax Christian School beginning in the 2022-2023 school year will have successfully completed training providing them with the foundational literacy skills and evidence-based approach which has made the Orton Gillingham Approach so successful.
