Hillcrest Christian School Transfer Students


One of the most gut-wrenching decisions you as a parent may have to make is to move your child from one school to another during the course of a school year. Whether across town, or across the country, this important decision can be gut-wrenching for you, and life-changing for your child.

At Hillcrest Christian School, we’re here to help. All our teachers are ministry-minded. We provide carefully differentiated instruction with smaller class size. Students and teachers alike describe Hillcrest as caring, safe, peaceful, and nurturing. In a Christian environment, our students tend to be more welcoming of new classmates.

All transitions can be somewhat challenging. Much depends on the effort and attitude of the student. We help all students become a part of the Hillcrest Christian family and to succeed in all areas of student life by pre-enrollment testing to determine proper academic placements, by assigning each new student a “buddy” to partner with and new student counseling.

Cutting-edge technology is part of our overall pedagogy, but Christian character and key skills such as self-control and leadership are integral to our program.

Hillcrest Christian school accepts transfer students at all grade levels at any point during the school year. We work with each family to identify the transition timing and classroom environment that is best for the student.

Attend a Free Educational Success Consultation and share the educational goals you have for your student with one of our administrators.

Potential students are invited to schedule a shadow day in the same grade in order to get a feel for what Hillcrest Christian School will be like. They will have the opportunity to meet faculty and current students while getting a taste of the fantastic classroom environment and various opportunities beyond our core classes.

We love the education and that Christ is the center of all that is taught. The relationships that the teachers create with their students is priceless.  We love that the teachers and staff are all on the same page with us as in what we want for our children.  We love that there is so much love and mentoring there, it is a family.

Amazing Christian-based love and support for the kids. Skilled teachers and staff who keep the kids engaged and make learning fun. I'm not sure how any other school could match the commitment and call of the Hillcrest team!
