Missional From Day One

We often hear the Hillcrest is experience is unique. In researching our history for the accreditation process, and a new website build in production, we came across some of the founding documents for the school. We wrote up a brief history of Hillcrest in this week's Principal's Blog to help you understand that Hillcrest's history is unique in scope and mission compared to other Christian schools. Hillcrest truly has been missional, from day one. We believe we are continuing to fulfill the charge of the founders of Hillcrest Academy, and we are excited to share this brief piece of history with you.

Introducing Hillcrest to Friends

Last weekend many students attended Bible camps for what is known as Winter Weekend. Hillcrest traveled to various camps showing a video made by marketing mentee Maddie Veum.

You can catch the video and see what Maddie put together to show her friends at bible camp by visiting the Video Blog>>

Secret Sister Successes

Last week students enjoyed a Hillcrest tradition. Secret brother week is a week where Hillcrest's ladies secretly select names of their male classmates and bake and spoil them for the entire week. On Friday the females identify themselves to their secret brother and the favors are returned in either a group dinner or through flowers, candies and snacks from the grateful boys to their secret sisters. 

A highlight was made to give you a taste of what the students experienced last week. You can watch the video at Hillcrest's Video Blog>>
