School Notes:

  • At Hilltop Christian School, our approach centers on personal, interactive instruction by experienced teachers who see each child as an individual.  Children are encouraged to learn by exploring the world around them, and to communicate and express themselves clearly and confidently.

    We believe in a solid grounding in academics, and in teaching children to be creative problem solvers.  We believe in teaching children values, like honesty, kindness and patience, so they will develop morality and integrity.

    We believe in the role of the parent in education, and we have a strong community of parents who share an active commitment to helping their children learn.

    We are a Christian-based school, but we are non-denominational.  We have a diverse student body and we believe in respect and tolerance for all people.

    At Hilltop Christian School, we don't teach classes, we teach children.
