Our Vision


Our name, "Higher Ground," reflects our vision.  It is our purpose to provide an attractive, well-equipped, and functional school facility.  Moreover, we are committed to providing a safe and cheerful environment where our students can thrive.  We are dedicated to meet the education needs of families throughout the greater Medicine Hat area.  Our standard of education is "high", and we are committed to academic excellence and to radiate the love of Jesus to all our students and to prepare them for heaven - the highest ground of all.


Our History

Our school had its beginnings in 1976 in the basement of the Seventh-day Adventist Church on Dunmore Road in Medicine Hat, AB.  In 1977, Mr. Harry Veiner donated a parcel of land, situated in Veinerville, on which the school presently stands.  In 1978 a full size gymnasium, kitchen and storage areas were added and the school was moved out of the church basement to Veinerville.

The present facility, in more recent years, underwent a name change from Veinerville Christian Academy to Higher Ground Christian School, to better reflect our goals.  The gymnasium has been named, Harry Veiner Memorial Gymnasiu.  The school is situated off the 41A highway in the small hamlet of Veinerville.  There is a school sign along the highway.
