A strong foundation for the bright future of our school
On June 22, 2015, Holland Marsh District Christian School (HMDCS) officially became King Christian School. For generations, HMDCS students have enjoyed the experience of Christ-centred education in fellowship with their fellow teachers, students, and families, and this legacy continues as our school grows into our new building and new name.
The origins of Holland Marsh District Christian School
Holland Marsh District Christian School was started in 1943 and has seen much change in its more than 70 years. From 19 students in the first year to branching out into two schools and then amalgamating back into one, the one thing that has never changed is our philosophy and values surrounding the provision of Christian schooling. Our school is interdenominational and welcomes students from throughout York Region, including Holland Landing, Aurora, Bradford, Newmarket, Schomberg, and other surrounding communities.
The future of HMDCS
The name HMDCS represents our roots in the Holland Marsh, which will always support our new growth. Our new name, King Christian School, is also a tribute to Christ the King. It also opens new opportunities to more Christian students. It helps to remove barriers in that parents who may have had the perception that we serve a smaller, more localized community begin to see that our doors are open to a broader geographical area, including King Township.
