When our son was ready for kindergarten, we reviewed many schools and ultimately chose Hill Country Christian School because of the Christ-centered education focus and the feeling of home & community. It is a decision we continue to be grateful we made. He has benefited from strong academics, the opportunity to increase his confidence and public speaking abilities through the annual speech meet, and the ability to participate in other competitions such as Math Olympics, Art Festival, and the Regional Science Fair. In addition to the academics, we truly appreciate the genuine love and care that all teachers, principals, and other school personnel show for each and every student. They all seem to know the kids by name, genuinely care for them and their education, and are truly devoted to the mission of the school. As the school matures, we have seen academics expand, new programs in STEM and athletics introduced, and we are excited for the years to come. Our decision to come to and stay at Hill Country Christian School has been especially validated during the COVID-19 shutdown and remote learning period. The school and teachers have done an amazing job providing an organized and high-level learning experience including weekly teacher-led live sessions and detailed lesson plans for the week to include not only core subjects but specials as well. Very impressive! As we transition to Middle School in the Fall, we could not be happier and look forward to all the new and exciting things to come.

We have been beyond pleased with Hill Country Christian School since we joined the community last year. We were immediately welcomed by parents, teachers and staff. We have been blown away by the love that the faculty and staff have for our children. They truly go above and beyond to know and teach our children. They do an amazing job at integrating the Bible into every subject. Our children have grown in character, integrity and academics since starting at Hill Country.

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.
