HCS Financial Policies
At Hillcrest School, we strongly believe that Christian education is not a commodity. It’s a ministry. It’s a commitment. It’s a connection – a connection between your child’s needs and your family philosophy and our philosophy. That’s why at HCS, the first and most important consideration is what is best educationally for your child. All other considerations are secondary.
As a ministry to Christian families, it is our desire that no family who is seeking a Christ-centered education be denied due to a lack of financial resources. Money IS important, and tuition is an investment in the life of your child. That’s why Hillcrest has one of the most robust needs-based financial aid programs in our area to assist families who demonstrate a financial need through our FACTS process.
FACTS is an online, 3rd party vendor that is highly confidential. Their goal is to assist in determining a financial need for our current and new families. Our Admissions Team will be glad to share all the details and answer any questions you have about tuition and financial aid. Our goal is that money will not stand in the way for qualified families.
Hillcrest gives up to $500,000 in needs-based financial aid each year to qualifying families.

HCS charges an annual tuition, due in full by June 30 or at the time of registration for those enrolling later in the year.

All three of our children graduated from Hillcrest. The school was integral in being a part of "our village" in raising our kids. The administrative leadership is second to none and the teaching staff is head's above any other I have ever encountered. The love and the joy of the Lord are present in all aspects of Hillcrest.Melissa Dundas
