JOIN THE HILLCREST CHRISTIAN SCHOOL FAMILYDon’t hesitate to call and schedule an appointment to come and visit the school, (805) 497-7501. Our staff would be happy to schedule a tour and answer any questions you have about our Christian school.
Accredited & Accountable
Yes, Hillcrest Christian School is fully accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) and the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI). We are committed to the highest quality in our academic programs and we are also committed to individualizing our teaching techniques and curriculum to meet the needs of each student.
Above all we are accountable to the Lord. The educational philosophy of Hillcrest Christian School is based on a God-centered view of life. We partner with Christian families to help students develop their talents, abilities, and character to impact this world for the Lord.
We Keep You In The Loop
Our online school system management platform, RenWeb, gives you and your children access to up-to-date information about grades, test schedules, classroom events, transcripts and more. Of course, there’s an APP for that. You can access your Renweb account via smart phones and tablets.
In addition, Hillcrest Christian School sends families a weekly email newsletter, a quarterly INDEPTH magazine, and our ParentLink program allows us to call all parents immediately. Of course, our web site is also up-to-date with information about latest HCS events, school announcements, sports scores, and more.
We Love Our Parents
We know it is the parent’s responsibility to bring up their children in the discipline and instruction of the Lord. (Ephesians 6:4). We believe it is our calling to partner with them in this important directive from the Lord.
Parental involvement is an important key to success in school. We encourage parents to be involved through our Parent Faculty Association, key school advisory committees, and required volunteer hours. Our parents are also prayer warriors, sports boosters, fund raisers, classroom helpers, field trip drivers, and most importantly proud evangelists for our school.
Hillcrest Christian School offers a wide variety of sports teams in our elementary school, middle school, and high school. Our high school teams participate in The California Interscholastic Federation (CIF). We also have competitive sports teams for our elementary and secondary students.
From our successful competitive CIF sports teams for high school to our skill development, all-play, programs for middle school and elementary, we understand how important athletics can be to the development of the whole child.
