The YMCA of Hong Kong Christian College (YHKCC) was established in September 2003. It is the first directly subsidized international Christian secondary school sponsored by the YMCA of Hong Kong since its establishment in 1901.
The YMCA of Hong Kong has a record of providing all-round social and educational services by means of continuing education, kindergarten education, physical and health education, employment related services, volunteer schemes, personal development and family services. Its hostel, food and beverage services, recreation programmes and international linkage offer strong support to the school.
In 2019, after the protest on 1 September, the school postponed the start of term until the next day because of considerable uncertainty resulting from the dangerous situation in Tung Chung station and the likelihood of traffic disruption.
