A challenging academic curriculum

The academic experience at Hillcrest is second to none.

Hillcrest high school students can choose from AP classes, dual enrollment offerings, and a wide range of electives. We don’t just teach theory, either. Students are fully engaged in hands-on learning experiences designed to help them practically apply classroom knowledge in the real world.

And students in our middle school program are empowered in a joy-filled, learner-centered environment that fully prepares them to move into high school with confidence.

Students at Hillcrest consistently outpace state and national averages. Hillcrest posted an average ACT composite score of 25. In fact, 91% of graduates attend a college or university, and Hillcrest has awarded nearly $1 million in merit scholarships.

But Hillcrest’s reputation for excellence goes beyond college readiness.

A truly Christ-centered student experience

A clear understanding of God’s unconditional love, respect for others, and a heart for service are more than core values at Hillcrest.

They are an integral part of the Hillcrest experience.

We believe Jesus is the center of our faith — and partnering with families and the church to teach students from a biblical worldview is central to our identity.

Hillcrest’s exemplary teachers are peacemakers, Christ followers, and servant leaders. We believe these exemplary qualities are a big part of what sets us apart from other private middle schools and high schools in the area.
