About Us

Welcome from the Head of School

Hickory Grove Christian School seeks to be distinctively different, distinctively Christian. There is a sincere concern for relationships that permeates the culture here at Hickory Grove.

We endeavor to honor our Lord by offering a continuously improving rigorous academic program at all levels. This includes a revised reading and writing program at the elementary level as well as the addition of a special education program in all grades and a new Gifted and Talented program for the elementary and middle schools coupled with an extensive Advanced Placement program (17 courses).

We offer a variety of sports that challenge our student athletes to live out their faith in the spirit of competition while providing the opportunity to use their gifts as a platform to share their faith with others. Our Arts Department offers a variety of opportunities to communicate the Gospel in a variety of artistic ways (drama, music and dance). Our emphasis on technology is evident as we seek to develop an atmosphere that promotes cooperation and collaboration which transcends the walls of our classroom.

Last and most important, we seek for Hickory Grove Christian School to be a school that lives “on mission” by exalting Christ in all that we do, whether through our Chapel services, day-to-day discussions in our classrooms, or rigorous Bible education. Our students also engage in various community partnerships to serve students and families. They also travel domestically serving inner-city churches and internationally to spread Christ’s love abroad.

This missional philosophy with our focus on a Biblical worldview is accomplished while sending graduating seniors to 136 colleges and universities, including all U.S. military academies, in just 13 years.

We sincerely appreciate your desire to explore Hickory Grove Christian School for your child's education. It would be an honor to partner with you in this journey.

In His Service,

Jimmie Quesinberry, Ed.D.
Head of School
