Welcome to Holly Grove Christian School.
Holly Grove Christian School started in the fall of 1976 with nineteen students. For over 37 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 built nine times to handle the increase in enrollment; six of the nine building projects were built by volunteers. 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.
Holly Grove Christian School is located in a beautiful rural setting on 38 acres in Westover, Maryland. There are 54 staff members ready and willing to serve our 495 students, who come from Maryland, Virginia and Delaware. We have six buses that are used to transport many of our students every day.
Holly Grove Christian School believes in a strong academic program. May 2013, 36 seniors graduated, who were offered over $1,700,000 in college scholarships. Our students have been accepted in many different colleges and are doing well. In the ACSI regional competition, HGCS students win ribbons in the math, speech and science fair. We also have a strong music program. The Honors Choir and Junior High Choir participated in the ESCDA Choral Festival with all the public and private schools on Maryland's Eastern Shore. Holly Grove received the highest score of "ones" which won us an invitation to the State Choral Festival. The Elementary and Junior High Choirs also won first in a competition at Busch Gardens. Our Athletic teams are competitive. Many of our teams won games in league playoffs.
Our mission statement says it all: "Holly Grove Christian School partners with families to provide excellence in Christ-centered academics by preparing students to live God honoring lives."
I invite you to come and enjoy the family atmosphere here at Holly Grove Christian School as we continue to pursue excellence and teach Christian morals and values.
