Be a role model.

Volunteers demonstrate generosity, put feet to faith, communicate value, and inspire goodness.  Experience the joy of generosity as you share your gifts and talents for the good of our kids and the glory of God.

There are many ways to get involved so see what best suits you!  Everyone has a place at Highland Christian School.  Let us help you find yours.  Together, we will prepare kids to impact the world for Christ!


Prayer Groups

All Year Long

Chairperson for Men: TBD [email protected]

Chairperson for Women: Tia Koutz [email protected]

Highland Christian School offers prayer groups for men and women.  Anyone with a heart for HCS, whether parent, grandparent, alumni, or neighbor - you are encouraged to uphold the school community in prayer, and this is an excellent way to do it.  The men’s and women’s prayer groups meet regularly throughout the school year (separately) to pray for the needs of the school, the families, and the community. Regular attendance is encouraged, but not required.  “For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them.” Matthew 18:20. If you would like more information about one of the prayer groups, check here.

TRIP stands for Tuition Reduction Incentive Program.  It is a great way to reduce your tuition by purchasing gift cards for everyday use or to hand out as gifts.  Every Tuesday there are groups who sort the gift card orders.  It is usually a two-hour commitment, once a month. We are also looking for someone to apprentice for the chairperson position. If you would like to volunteer for the TRIP program and/or learn the job for a year under the current coordinator, check here.

Husky Ambassador

Chairperson: Jessica Hiskes [email protected]

With so many new families at HCS this year, we thought having a Husky Ambassador per grade would help with the transition!  The Husky Ambassador would be the contact person/family for new families and students.  They can check-in, see how the school year is going, and be there to answer any questions that might arise.  Essentially the Husky Ambassador would be the liaison for HCS!  If you are interested in being a Husky Ambassador, please email Jessica at the e-mail above!
