I attended Hillcrest for 3 years of high school as a dorm student -- it was an incredibly formative and important experience for me, particularly spiritually. I learned tons of life and spiritual lessons that have served me well into adulthood, fatherhood, etc. The teachers I had, the friends I made all provided a nurturing environment that I continue to cherish and reflect on more than 15 years after attending there. I highly recommend this school!

I have loved being here it changed my life! the teacher truly care about the students and you make life long friends. I never felt more loved or accepted then when I came to Hillcrest. They have great clubs, sports and after school programs that help you feel involved and stay busy. plus they give you some freedom that helps you adjust to college better. Hillcrest is such a diverse place to but I never felt alone or outcasted. The community was incredibly accepting and helpful!
I attended Hillcrest for three years as a dorm student. It was the best experience of my life, and I would recommend Hillcrest to anybody. Rigorous academics coupled with a Bible based environment encouraged both my intellectual and spiritual growth. The majority of my best friends to this day were classmates at Hillcrest. I wish I could go back!
