Hillcrest Educational Centers, Inc.
was founded on the belief that our students are unique individuals with specific needs.
Accordingly, the fully integrated therapeutic, educational and residential programming we offer is tailored to enable students to both reach and use their true potential.
Students are referred to Hillcrest Educational Centers when their behavior is severely problematic, self-defeating, and, sometimes, dangerous to the student and/or others.
Therefore, our students require residential treatment in order to develop and learn to use self control, to change their behavior, and to grow psychologically and emotionally.
Hillcrest's goal is to facilitate the social, emotional, intellectual, and physical growth of our students so that they will be able to benefit from, and do well in, less restrictive settings and eventually return to the community.
