Hillcrest Christian School provides an excellent Christ centered educational experience for students infant through 12th grade. We are a covenantal Christian school, which makes us unique in the Conejo Valley. Covenantal means we partner with families that have already established a Christian home, attend a Christian church, and desire to partner with a Christian school. We believe it is absolutely the best situation for our students to receive the same message from church, home and school. This arrangement also helps our students find friends from families with similar values, morals and beliefs as your family.
For 44 years, Hillcrest Christian School has provided exceptional education to thousands of alumni who have gone on to excel in the colleges of their choice. Our 95% college/university acceptance rate average is a great testimony to the high quality learning experience provided by our dedicated faculty.
HCS provides an outstanding Christian education, enabling students to excel academically, while building confidence through the nurturing, safe environment that reinforces character and service over self.
Leadership and responsibility are enhanced through the wide variety of enrichment and student leadership opportunities, throughout Hillcrest Christian’s exceptional extra curricular programs, accentuated by competitive sports and fine arts.
At every grade level Hillcrest Christian provides an atmosphere that equips each child, enabling them to reach their full potential academically and spiritually. HCS’s positive environment encourages students to discover and enhance their God given creative talents and abilities, while guiding students to seek their individual destiny and make a difference in the lives of others.

What Parents Are Saying...
After a set of circumstances, our three high-schoolers transferred from a giant local private school with an impressive appearance to Hillcrest Christian who actually lives out their name. HCS has its STUDENTS/families (not its appearance) at its heart. If you're looking for an environment where your student will learn what it means to be a recognized part of a family, HCS is that place.
We are new to Thousand Oaks and California. This is our three children's first year at Hillcrest Christian School. We love the family atmosphere and all of the activities, Christian emphasis and Christ centered education . We highly recommend Hillcrest Christian School.
