School Reviews

Hill Country Christian School has been a blessing to our family for 12 years. The quality of education is excellent. The love of the teachers and administrators for every student is evident on a daily basis. They know the students by name even if they have never personally taught that student. The leadership skills, character, and biblical worldview our kids have developed are invaluable. My kids have been taught how to think for themselves, how to actively engage their minds, and how to evaluate and analyze information rather than just how to regurgitate memorized facts. Students at this school are being prepared very effectively to transition successfully into college and life beyond college.
