Highlands Christian School is a private, co-educational school dedicated to carrying on the legacy of Carden education in Lake Highlands. 

Built upon a foundation of the proven, time-tested Carden Method curriculum, Highlands Christian School provides an academic environment that is both nurturing and rigorous for Pre-K through 6th grade students.

We believe that as children train their minds through academics, they should also strengthen their bodies through athletic endeavors, and develop a spiritual foundation as they learn to "act justly, love mercy, and to walk humbly with God." 

At Highlands Christian School, your children will learn to think independently while developing a love of learning that will stay with them forever. 

Our 15:1 teacher-student ratio and average teacher tenure of 24 years make us unique among Dallas schools. We emphasize academic excellence, development of character, a "whole child" focus, and independent thinking within a supportive and nurturing environment.

"Our family is thrilled to be joining HCS for the 2023 school year! The proven curriculum and lineup of teachers make it a winning choice for us. For the last 9 years, our children have benefitted from the love, dedication, and experience of these seasoned teachers. The Carden Method for reading, memorization, classic literature, and required presentations have strengthened their minds and stretched their work ethic in lasting ways. Above all, I am grateful for the accountability my children feel for their work and their character. They are held to high standards and, because they know they are seen and loved, they are highly motivated to rise to the occasion. To quote a 6th grade teacher, 'I promise you: They will fly.' Indeed they have."
