Hillsdale Academy
Founded in 1990, the Academy serves as a model kindergarten-through-twelfth grade school.
Under the auspices of Hillsdale College, the Academy bases its curriculum on a solid grounding in fundamental academic skills, an exploration of the arts and sciences, and an understanding of the foundational tenets of our Judeo-Christian and Greco-Roman heritage.
Originally K-8, the Upper School was incorporated in 1998, and the first graduation occurred in June 2001.
Hillsdale Academy offers an academically enriched alternative to students in Hillsdale County and the surrounding area.
Students are admitted to the Academy based on the combined strengths of their application and interview, inasmuch as these show evidence of personal motivation.

School Reviews

My second child is getting ready to graduate from Hillsdale Academy. I couldn''t recommend this school more highly! The faculty is outstanding, and the curriculum relevant and challenging. Where other schools "teach to the book", Hillsdale Academy, teaches to the student. Character building is as much part of the experience, as scholarly learning is. We are blessed to have this educational institution as an option, in the shadow of Hillsdale College. As my daughter choses which college to attend in the fall, her ACT score of 32, ensures she will have more than enough offers to chose from. Thank you Hillsdale Academy for all you do, and all you are!
