School Notes

  • Killian Hill Christian School, one of Gwinnett county`s first Christian schools, has been serving our community as an outreach of Killian Hill Baptist Church since 1972. From our humble beginnings as a preschool to our current state as a fully accredited K-12 college-preparatory school servicing hundreds of students on a beautiful campus, our mission has remained the same-"to assist parents in their God-given responsibility of educating their young people."
  • Our unique education begins with the solid foundation of a biblical worldview on which a stable framework of academic excellence is built. Balanced fine arts and athletic programs for our students complement our focus on proper self-discipline and worthy character. All of this "construction" is done by the loving hands of our credentialed, caring, and Christ-honoring faculty and staff.
  • We encourage you to investigate us further through an Open House visit. You will see that Training Scholars, Making Disciples, and Graduating Leaders is more than just a motto; it is something we strive to accomplish every day for God`s glory and your child`s individual achievement. We are excited to announce our new K4 program started August 2017!We truly hope you will choose to be a part of the Killian Hill family this year.

What a blessing this school is! It is a school that is filled with faculty and staff that love and encourage all students to not only grow in their academics but also in their walk with the Lord. Another great thing about Killian is their sports programs. Killian offers volleyball, soccer, basketball, and more! Coaches invest their time in these athletes because they want to see them succeed. Killian Hill Christian School is such a blessing!

We are so grateful for KHCS! Our four children - two are graduates of KHCS currently earning their bachelor of science degrees and two are in secondary school at KHCS. We are thankful that KHCS partners with us for the education of our children. The administration and teachers are approachable on the elementary and the secondary levels and they care for their students. Because of the influence of KHCS not only were our two college children well-prepared for college academic work, but they were also well-prepared to meet deadlines, lead student organizations, make friendships with classmates from all over the world, and to continue in their Christian walk.

Social distance in full force due to COVID-19, many are in panic mode clearing shelves of literally everything in site now that they have cleaned the shelves of toilet paper and hand sanitizer. It is reassuring to see how prepared the school is to move the students to digital learning. Instructions were clear, and there was regular communication to the student body and parents. It is in troubled times like this that you learn whether a school is bad, good or excellent by how it will respond. KHCS passed with flying colors and as a parent, I am grateful to the dedicated staff who always have my child's best interest in mind. Thank you!!!

Our daughter is in her second year at KHCS (high school) and absolutely loves it. Prior to Killian Hill, she never looked forward to school and was generally miserable. She has openly expressed how happy she is there, how much she loves the staff, and how she honestly looks forward to being there each day. What an amazing difference they have made in her life! She has developed friendships with students and staff that I don't believe would have happened at the public school. As parents, we have had nothing but positive experiences with KHCS. If you are looking for a small class environment that offers sincere caring for your child, please go take a tour. You won't regret it.

I have had 3 children graduate from Killian Hill. They received an outstanding education--college was easy after attending Killian Hill. We loved all the opportunities for different activities--from drama (competing on a national level),sports, choirs, discipleship. They truly wanted them to be a complete person. I think the Biblical worldview emphasis was evident through every grade and every subject. They were challenged to think things through and not be swayed by anyone else. It is a unique place.

I knew Killian Hill was where God wanted us to place our Daughter from the first day we visited. Parents stopped us in the halls on this first visit to tell us what a good school it was and to express how their kids loved it. We were also impressed with it Fundamental Christian beliefs, well rounded curriculum, and high academic standards. Our daughter has continued to do well academically and loves school. I am happy to say we are now one of those parents who would stop visitor in the hall to give a testimonial on the school, and to encourage friends and those we hear of who are searching for a school to try Killian Hill Christian School. May God continue to Bless and use the school and the Church from which it started.
