Hillcrest Academy: Independent Study Program
As Christians, we believe that God has entrusted us with the responsibility of raising and educating our children. Here at Hillcrest, we strive to be an extension of the home to aid parents in this endeavor. With this in mind, we have extended our ministry to include an Independent Study Program known as Hillcrest Christian Online Academy. It is our hope that together we can help Christian parents educate their children in a way that glorifies our Lord and falls within the legal parameters of the state.
This program is designed to help in two areas:
Hillcrest Christian Online Academy will provide families with support and guidance by offering educational and social opportunities that many homeschooling families lack. We offer a WASC/ACSI accredited program, including a complete on-line curriculum option and a part-time option, which allows Middle School and High School students to attend classes on campus. This program includes CIF participation for those in high school.
In the Hybrid program, students can take up to four classes on campus and a minimum of three classes online through HCS during the school year. Hybrid students must go through the same admissions process as the full-time students. Students are welcome to participate in all HCS on campus activities including sports, clubs, dances and Chapel.

A Hillcrest Christian Online Academy diploma is attainable for prospective students from anywhere in the world. A student can choose to earn all their high school credits through our online course options. In addition, online students who live locally are welcome to participate in all HCS on campus events.
