Hillcrest Academy: Home School Program

Our Mission

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 a Home School/Independent Study Program known as Hillcrest 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 Academy will provide families with support and guidance by offering educational and social opportunities that many homeschooling families lack. We offer a fully accredited WASC 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 addition, students have the option of taking an online course during the summer for credit recovery or to complete a class not offered as part of our regular school year course offering.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact Stevi Jones at 805-497-7501 X 233 or email sjones (at)
