We work with a few different organizations and institutions to create a better learning experience for our students and families.
Holland Christian Schools
While Holland Christian Schools and Zeeland Christian Schools are separate school systems, we share a strong passion for Christian education. We both believe in planting our kids in a firm foundation of faith while challenging them academically.
From a practicial standpoint, we also get the benefit of shared resources. A great example of this in the area of technology. Holland Christian Schools has been a generous supporter of technology at Zeeland Christian Schools. They helped us get our one-to-one laptop program off the ground. Plus, they assist in the overall maintenance and management of our technology program.
From a high level perspective, HCS and ZCS work together at the school board level, at the administration level, at the curriculum level and at the teaching level. We are committed to a strong working relationship with Holland Christian Schools moving forward.
Zeeland Christian High School?
We consider Zeeland Christian a PreK-12th grade program because our students can begin as early as Threeschool and stay within our system through Twelvth Grade. High school education takes place at Holland Christian High School. Not only do our highschoolers attend HCHS, but we also work closely with Holland Christian on continuing some of our educational programs. For example, Holland Christian will be the sole provider of continuing Spanish immersion education at the high school level for our Spanish immersion students. Plus, they provide ongoing support and assistance for our one-to-one laptop program which continues into high school.

Note: Each year, we have a handful of students who leave ZCS after eighth grade. While we believe strongly in the benefits of continued Christian education, we also understand that there are sometimes extenuating circumstances which will cause a family to choose an alternate educational path after middle school. We believe God has a plan for each of us and we love and support these students just as much as the students who stay with us through the end of high school.
Christian Learning Center
The Christian Learning Center (CLC) is a nonprofit organization that helps promote development of people with a variety of abilities and disabilities by providing education and support services to schools, churches and homes. We have CLC staff at Zeeland Christian. These loving teachers are integral in putting together the individual strategies needed to help each child develop.
add.a.lingua helps schools promote and expand language immersion education. add.a.lingua was started by the same educators who brought Spanish immersion to Zeeland Christian School. Now, as a partner organization, add.a.lingua provides direct leadership, support and resources for our PreK-5th grade Spanish immersion program, our K-5th Mandarin immersion program and our Prek-8th Grade FLES program that brings Spanish into all of our traditional classrooms on a weekly basis.

Christ in Schools
We are blessed to be part of a consortium of schools called, "Christ in Schools." This group of a dozen+ schools banded together a few years ago in order to promote Christian educatiuon through out West Michigan. Not only do the schools actively market Christian education, but they also share best practices and resources. This group of schools is been a wonderful source of support and encouragement.

Zeeland Public Schools
We are grateful for our relationship with Zeeland Public Schools. We believe strong public schools are incredibly important for a community. Plus, their shared resources make a huge difference in the lives of Zeeland Christian School kids everyday. Things like bussing, hot lunch, specialized educational support, etc. are possible because Zeeland Public Schools works with us to provide those resources.
