High school at Hillcrest is not a cookie-cutter, one size fits all experience.  Dedicated, talented, qualified secondary staff allow us to be a small school with big school vision and opportunity. We schedule students into the courses that help them attain their post-high school goals including certified AP classes that allow them to earn college credit.  The success of our academic efforts can be seen in the excellent colleges and universities that eagerly accept our kids.

Beyond the outstanding educational opportunities, HIllcrest offers, at the core of who we are is relationships.  Students develop strong bonds with each other and with the teachers who take time to really know them as individuals. Our school is also focused on helping each student strengthen his/her relationship with Jesus  Christ.
