Spiritual Emphasis and Christian Character Development at Hillcrest
Hillcrest Christian School exists to demonstrate that “the fear of God is the beginning of all wisdom”. Daily biblical instruction is featured at all grade levels. In addition, chapel services are conducted weekly, featuring guest speakers, small group interactions and praise music led by the student Worship Bands.
During our annual “Spiritual Emphasis Week” we feature special speakers, and extended times of prayer, praise and personal ministry to encourage spiritual growth for students and faculty alike.
In the classroom the Christian worldview dominates each subject, from history to biology. Small class size and a staff of dedicated Christian teachers allow one-on-one attention to serving the building of Christian character for the students at Hillcrest Christian School.
Hillcrest is dedicated to providing a place where those who are dedicated to Christ may thrive academically, physically, socially and spiritually. Therefore, each enrolled student is required to have at least one parent sign our Statement of Christian Commitment. Exceptions to this standard are rare and must be approved by our principal.
Christian Character Development
Hillcrest strives to teach students what it means to be Christ followers, building character that is based on the truth of God’s Word rather than social norms. Teaching the moral values clearly defined in Scripture and focusing on the example Jesus set of loving and serving others will equip our students to grow and mature in their faith.
Based on our Biblical foundation, we have adopted an Honor Code that will provide an environment that is conducive to Christian growth and academic achievement.

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
The individual attention is fantastic. The camaraderie and relationships of the entire family with the staff, students, and parents is positive and inviting. The level of academics has been great at levels we are at to this point. The experience my daughter has had in kindergarten is beyond anything we could have hoped for.Tamryn Bua
