- What began in the early 1990`s as one man`s dream is today a glowing and growing reality: a vibrant, independent Christian school, set on a beautiful 280-acre campus in East Texas, with a three-fold mission that permeates every aspect of Brook Hill`s existence. That mission To provide excellence in college preparatory education, affirm the gifts and challenge the potential of each student, and encourage students to honor God through Christ-like character. Although Brook Hill is a non-denominational Christian school, the Bible is studied for credit, and students attend Chapel services weekly. The academic doors were opened in the fall of 1997 with 31 students in grades six, seven, and eight. A grade level was added each year until reaching a full complement of PreK through twelve in the fall of 2005. An international/domestic boarding program was established in the summer of 2003, and Brook Hill has now hosted students from China, Ghana, Japan, Korea, Kosovo, Mexico, Micronesia, South Africa, Taiwan, Turks and Caicos and Vietnam. Less than a two-hour drive from Brook Hill is Dallas, a major, multicultural city and hub for national and international flights. Students enjoy the day-to-day benefits of our quiet country setting, as well as our close proximity to all that Dallas has to offer.

Brook Hill has been an incredible school for Pre-K. My son is already learning sight words, and he feels loved and safe every day at school. There are 14 kids in his class, a full-time teacher and a full-time aid. He receives an incredible amount of individual attention. The students are also so kind. When he walks into a class in the morning, his friends give him hugs and say hello. He has fun every day - with recess, PE, music, art, library, and even a makers space (brand new this semester!). The best part is that the Gospel is woven into every aspect of his education. It's not just a chapel or a prayer before lunch, but a whole environment where Christ is first. We are here for life, and I can't wait for my daughter to be old enough to attend.

My daughter is in the middle school at BH and we have attended since third grade. We are very pleased with the level of academics and extracurricular activities offered by BH in a Christian environment. Our daughter has excelled with their program and has all A's along with being involved in sports, the arts and clubs. The teachers are excellent and we also like the extra activities such as field trips to other parts of Texas, college tours, etc. The school is small but has a feel of a college campus. We live in Tyler and it's only a 15 min. drive from the South part of town. I thoroughly looked at all other private schools in Tyler and actually came from a different one and this one is the best without a doubt.
