Coming back from the Dominican Republic, we found one major theme that seems to include both American and Dominican Students. Students in both cultures are enamored with electronics, to the point of being amused to death.
We have seen this amusement lead to passivity. We are working against this as we introduce students to the passion God has for the world. Our work often times feels counter-cultural.
Visit the Principal's Blog to see a short video and read how we're addressing this topic.
A Mission in Athletics
Comet basketball is starting, following a short break in athletics to celebrate Thanksgiving. One of the exciting practices at Hillcrest Academy is the prayer and testimony time by the HLA ball players. They have a desire for their opponents to know Christ.
Please visit our athletic schedule, and make it a point to see some games as this passion is lived out. You'll get the chance to see that there is much more than a game of Basketball being played-out on the floor.
