Imagine this for a moment: You are working at a high school whose staff cares deeply about their students’ learning and their students’ faith and character development; a school where staff work to orchestrate exceptional learning experiences and where student work makes the world a better place; a school whose graduates enter the world motivated to make a positive impact and have been challenged to live out their true potential. If this exercise in imagination gets you excited, read on!
Hamilton District Christian High has been a thriving learning community in the Hamilton area for 60 years. We are an independent, faith-based school that believes educating teenagers involves more than passing on information. An HDCH education is like no other; exceptional teachers investing in students makes all the difference to student engagement. We want to see our students grow in competence and character, develop creativity and reflection, and critique and create culture in all of their classes and extracurricular pursuits.
We invest heavily in our school culture. Come walk through our halls and experience it for yourself. Our school climate is rooted in building positive relationships with students. Our staff hold high expectations and provide high support for all students, journeying the high school years with them. Just ask our students – our teachers are not only highly knowledgeable in their fields of study, but also work hard to support each student and meet individual learning needs.
We approach classroom teaching through Project Based Learning. Students are given meaningful tasks, engage in ongoing inquiry involving experts, apply their learning to real-world situations, and use their learning and projects to improve and bless the greater Hamilton area and beyond. Because our learning is so closely connected to our community, we do a lot of field trips and frequently host visiting experts in many different subject areas. On top of these academic field trips, Hamilton District Christian High also has a variety of sports teams and student clubs that encourage our students and teachers to be out of the building and in the community.
Please note that HDCH is committed to fair and accessible employment practices; accommodations will be made available to applicants as required during recruitment and hiring.
