Making the transition from grade 8 to grade 9 (and transitioning to HD for all grades!)
Through the course of the school year, we offer group and private tours, Check Us Out Family Open Houses and Parent Forum information events, so you can find out more about the school. Please complete the inquiry form to select the event and date that works for you!
Exceler8 is a half day high school experience, taking place in late fall, designed for grade 8s. Partner elementary schools will be coming to the event in classroom groups. If you are not attending one of our partner schools, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to register.
We hold our Check Us Out Open House and our Parent Forum information events in the fall.
Grade 9’s Advice
We asked the Grade 9s about what advice they would give to someone thinking of coming to Hamilton District Christian High next year. This is what they said:
“I think I would say when you come, you definitely need to try out for every team and other extra curricular activities.”
“Don’t worry about high school being tough or not fitting in – all the teacher’s I’ve had so far are super understanding and flexible to your individual needs, and there’s so many new, nice people that it’s practically impossible not to make friends!”
“Say hi to people you’ve never met.”
“Do it, you get to be with people who are in the same beliefs as you, and that means you get to talk about your faith, but you still get to have fun with your friends and classmates, the academics are great, the athletics are great and the people are the best part of it all!”
“Join as many sports teams or clubs as you can because they help you in making friends and just make your high school experience more fun.”
