Parents, regardless of race, nationality, or ethnic origin, are invited to enroll their children in Reformed Heritage Christian School. Because the school is based on religious principles taught in the Bible, it is necessary that all students admitted to the school proceed from homes that agree with the teachings of God’s word. Enrollment may be granted to children of parents who do not subscribe to all the statements of faith in the schools by-laws if they regularly attend a Bible believing evangelical Christian church and annually subscribe to a statement of faith.

The Old and New Testaments are the basis of faith for the Association. We stand on the interpretations of the Scriptures given in the doctrinal statements: The Belgic Confession, the Heidelberg Catechism, and the Canons of Dordt. These historic Reformed documents are important as the basis of our school.
We also identify six areas of distinctive emphasis
1. The Bible: It is God’s inspired, inerrant revelation. The nature of Biblical authority is divine; the extent of Biblical authority is total (2 Peter 1:20-21).
2. Creation: The Father created the universe and all creatures in six literal days from no pre-existing substance (Hebrews 11:3). Naturalistic and theistic evolution is rejected.
3. Antithesis: Since the fall, there have been two opposing spiritual forces laying claim to God’s creation. All areas of life in all their aspects belong to God and are to be brought under his redemptive Lordship.
4. The Covenant: God calls to Himself a people whom He saves, adopts them as His own children, and establishes a relationship of friendship with them. This covenant is for believers in Christ and their children. Therefore, Christian parents receive their children as a trust from the Lord (Acts 2:38-39, Mark 10:13-14).
5. Human Relationships: God created man in His own image. He created male and female. Thus, we reject egalitarian philosophies, which seek to remove God-ordained distinctions between parents and children, husband and wife, and male and female (Ephesians 6:1-4, Romans 1:24-27).
6. Schooling: The primary responsibility for education rests upon parents. The authority of the teacher is derived from the fact that he/she acts as representative of the parents (Deuteronomy 6).
Students and staff are members of the following churches:
- Community Orthodox Presbyterian Church
- Covenant United Reformed Church
- Kalamazoo Protestant Reformed Church
- Second Christian Reformed Church
- Trinity United Reformed Church
- Westwood Christian Reformed Church
The Reformed Heritage Christian School Association was formed in 1993 by parents who desired to provide their children with a quality education that was rooted in Scripture and the Reformed confessions.
RHCS is arranged in multi-grade classrooms with the exception of kindergarten. Our facilities include eight classrooms, a computer lab, multi-purpose room and library.
We are a growing educational community; yet students enjoy the individual attention they need due to a low student/teacher ratio. The teachers and administration subscribe to Reformed beliefs.
School Song: Psalter Hymnal No. 150
Let children hear the mighty deeds
Which God performed of old;
Which in our younger years we saw,
And which our fathers told.
He bids us make His glories known,
His works of power and grace;
And we’ll convey His wonders down
Through every rising race.
Our lips shall tell them to our sons,
And they again to theirs;
That generations yet unborn
May teach them to their heirs.
Thus shall they learn in God alone
Their hope securely stands,
That they may ne’er forget His works,
But practice His commands.
