The purpose of the Athletic Department is to model and teach our students about Christ-honoring competition and expose them to the world of school-sponsored competitive sports. Golden Hills Christian School offers a number of sports including basketball (boys and girls), volleyball (girls in the fall & coed in the spring), boy’s flag football, 6-on-6 soccer (coed), and cheerleading. We currently belong to the San Joaquin County Christian Athletic League.
The art program at GHCS introduces the students in the first through eighth grades to many of the concepts of art. These classes are held once per week. The program includes artistic perception such as observational skills as well as creative expression. The main focus each week includes some or all of the elements of art. All grades participate in age-appropriate projects that are designed to be challenging and to develop a sense of accomplishment in the students. Projects include basic drawing, collage, painting, and perspective drawing. We also participate in the ACSI Art Festival. Kindergarten and first grade do not participate in the school-wide art program as their art is incorporated into their curriculum.
From the pumpkin patch to 49er Camp, to the zoo to Washington DC, each grade participates in age-appropriate field trips to promote and enhance their curriculum.
Throughout the year our students have a variety of opportunities to further enhance their education such as participating in Speech Meets, Spelling Bees, Science Fairs, and Art Festivals.
