Principal Isaac Instructs on Formation

Hillcrest's annual Spiritual Formations week is a highlight for many students. Many speak to some of the pointed conversations the faculty and staff have with students during this week. A lingering message give by Principal Isaac has been ringing in many students' ears as they start-up their final semester at Hillcrest. 

We invite you to watch a short video of Principal Isaac's closing message where you'll get a glimpse into how Hillcrest seeks to intentionally prepare students in a Bible-based environment for a life of significance. 

HIT Worship Night

The Hillcrest Invitation Tournament (HIT) is a Basketball tournament organized through Hillcrest for the Church of the Lutheran Brethren this weekend. With a large number of people visiting Hillcrest, a kick-off worship time was started. This year the worship band comes from Bethesda Lutheran Brethren Church in Eau Claire, WI. The band is slated to lead worship during the Church of the Lutheran Brethren's biennial National Youth Conference in Estes Park, CO.

We invite families to attend the worship night which begins at 11pm on Friday, April 12th. For more information regarding the HIT tournament and the worship night please visit the HIT webpage.

Choir Tour Recap

The annual Hillcrest Music Department tour brought the Concert Choir to the great American South-West. The tour consisted of 16 performances in a 14 day period where students were able to communicate how God has used Hillcrest to impact them.

We invite you to look through some pictures from the tour HERE>>.

College Corner

Guidance Counselor Ruth Juliot has communicated a helpful site to students as they consider their future. Having guided this year's seniors through the college inquiry phase, Mrs. Juliot is now initiating the converstaion with Hillcrest's underclassmen.

One of the resources Mrs. Juliot is recommending is the GPS LifePlan site. Through the GPS site parents and students can take a series of assessments to help students consider some potential career options and study paths as they look to the college and university.
