Hillcrest Academy is good alternative to public education and offers the advantage of small classes, foreign language, art, music, and physical education in their curriculum. Their weaknesses are communication, asking for parent input, elementary math, and technology. The math program shows improvement ...  Read more

My granddaughter is currently a first grader and began attending during the 2012-2013 school year as a kindergartener. I cannot speak highly enough about this school.

My wife and I started looking for a school for our son when he was three years old. Our requirements were a private, non-religious school that would provide support to his level of learning.

This is our 4th year at Hillcrest Academy. My daughter started as a kindergartner and has just started 3rd grade.

She's also learned ...  Read more

We had all 4 of our children at Hillcrest in 2012-13. My oldest just started high school in August; the 1 year he was at Hillcrest for 8th grade prepped him more than any other year/s of schooling! The teachers are all amazing, top-notch professionals who truly CARE about each and every child. My 3 younger ...  Read more

I looked at ALL the local private schools, and Hillcrest comes out on top for several reasons: 1- the academics are not rote or formulaic. Hillcrest consistently reviews its curriculum both internally and with outside accreditors (CAIS), including adding IB. Other private schools have not looked at ...  Read more

To me, the tuition increase is like everything else these days- things simply cost more !I certainly don't pay the same at the gas pump as I did a year ago. I am the parent of two students at Hillcrest and I am getting my money's worth. As a public school teacher, I have seen first hand the devastating ...  Read more
