My family is new to Hill Country Christian School and have two elementary age children attending. As new parents we have been so impressed with the high level of communication that is provided to parents on a regular basis. It is huge to know what is happening at the school. The faculty has been simply fabulous and this includes not only the grade level teachers. This includes the librarians, school nurse, principal and head master. The beyond academic opportunities are also amazing. The school offers things such as a Chess Club, History Club and Pep Squad. One last point is the welcome by existing parents, faculty and admissions office has made for an easier transition.
We have been members of the HCCSA family for 5 years now and look forward to MANY more! Their newly added Preschool is outstanding and provides a safe haven for our young students! My children still benefit from past teachers as they walk the halls. The staff is supportive and welcoming. I believe the most important thing you can instill into a child is their love of learning (and this school has excellent curriculum that the student's learn by singing, dancing and motions). The strong sense of Christ-centered behavior is evident in the education they receive from day one until the day they walk out the doors in the afternoon, along with great friendships that span many grade levels! We are truly blessed to have found a Christ-centered learning environment that enables us to not only watch our children learn, but participate in their growth as young adults!
We switched from public school to HCCSA when our daughter was going into 1st grade. She is now in 5th grade and our son is in 1st. We love HCCSA and feel that the Christ centered values are priceless and worth the sacrifice that we make to afford a private education. I am a public school teacher and believe that children get a great education in our public schools; however, it is not Christ centered and that is what we want for our children. We believe the moral values and biblical teachings are the foundation for our children s successful future AND they get a great education too! If you feel the same then I encourage you to visit HCCSA.
Hill Country Christian School of Austin has been a dream come true for our family! My children have attended public school, home school and other Christian schools. HCCSA has proved to be even more than what we hoped for in our search for an education of academic excellence! Our children are challenged daily in their classes and come home with a love for learning and a desire to learn more. They know that the headmaster, principal, nurse, their homeroom teacher and their Latin teachers know their name and care about them. There are so many opportunities at Hill Country for our children to grown into well-rounded adults: Latin, Speech Meet, Spelling Bee, Music, Art and History Events. As a parent who wants the best education for my children and has lived in three different states, I can promise that you won't find a better school in the Austin area!
Our children have excelled at this school. They were in an "exemplary" school prior to enrolling at Hill Country and the quality of education was much lower at their old school. Their academics are far superior. The teachers absolutely love each child and works very hard to love and encourage each one. My only complaint is that they do not talk enough about other religions. I understand they are Christian focused, but the world is a diverse place. We would highly recommend them to anyone!
Wonderful teachers with a genuine love for their students. Strong acedemics and a wonderful Christian atmosphere. It's very comforting to know my children are in a school that reinforces the Biblical teaching they get at home. They are excelling in all academic areas and are learning life-long skills as well.
Finding a school with very high academic standards was our top priority, and we found that with HCCSA. The teachers are highly qualified and they have high expectations for students. We enjoy having our children in an educational setting with other highly motivated students, parents and teachers. Best of all, all learning at HCCSA leans toward higher education, so you never hear "Are you going to college?" Instead, you hear "WHERE are you going to college?"
This is our first year at Hill Country Christian School and my kids could not be happier! The teachers make learning fun and interactive. They offer so many extra clubs that it is hard to choose! The administration is very organized and there is no pressure to volunteer in order to make the school run.
Hill Country Christian School of Austin has been an amazing experience for our child and our family. The academic opportunity is much more advanced than what we found in the public schools and previous private schools. We are so thankful to have found a place where our child can grow and learn in an environment that challenges her academically but also holds precious her Christian path and sense of community. The communication with the teachers is wonderful and we always feel like we are kept up to date on her progress. We recommend this school without hesitation to any family seeking academic excellence partnered with Christian values. We look forward to the years to come with HCCSA!
HCCSA provides an environment where my kids love their teachers every year, are challenged to learn, and mature into responsible, happy kids. The staff and teachers know my kids strenghts and weaknesses and are interested in helping me, not just with the academics, but with the spiritual and social growth of my children as well. HCCSA is not only about preparing my kids for college but also for life.
Hill Country Christian School of Austin exemplifies daily strong leadership and classical learning which is enriching our children with a strong biblical foundation to build upon for life and its many challenges. The daily activities and homework reflect the proper way to study and learn and prepare our children for college and career development. The investment we have in our children at this school is "priceless." The opportunities for each student is numberous and held to the highest standards to insure success in an excellent array of extracurricular activities with strong parental involvement encourage with each of your children at every grade level. Yes, the education I wish I would have received!
We could not be more pleased with the spiritual and academic development of our children through our partnership with Hill Country Christian School of Austin. The teachers and administrators invest personally in the lives of the students and families who are part of this community of learners.
We chose HCCSA because of the classical education model within the Christian environment. We've stayed eight years because of the phenomenal success our kids have experienced here. Yes, there have been administrative snafus and a few communication missteps along the way. But ultimately our yearly decision to re-enroll is based on the "bottom line" output, that is our children. They love the school mostly because of the supportive and loving environment from teachers and administrators. We love it because we see our kids challenged, enthusiastic and "shining", even at ages when many kids become sullen and withdrawn.
We are so blessed to have found this school. Our son was bored to tears in 2nd grade and now in our 3rd year at HCCSA he is so happy, challenged and still has straight A's! Not only is the curriculum college prep but he has learned life skills from participation in Spelling Bee, Speech Meet, History Timelines, Latin, Bible verse memorization and field studies. HCCSA is so much more than a "school"; it is truly an educational success story!
As a teacher at HCCSA I see the smile on children's faces as they connect the pieces to the learning puzzle. I love that our curriculum is connected and well thought out. It is also amazing to see the support and love not only within the classroom but from the parents who volunteer endlessly to support us! I am so grateful for such a nurturing place where learning is balanced with family, activities, the arts and languages all while focused on Christ at the center of all that we do and teach!
We are very proud to send our children to a school where respect and integrity matter, not to mention being a grade level plus above public curriculum. I have watched my children mature acedemically and grow spiritually.
I am a dad who enjoys the football games, family "school" food nights out and great curriculum, all the while focusing on making a difference for Christ and sharing His love, with and in all you do. It is the place to educate our future leaders. They have it all!
After researching and visiting several Christian schools in Austin, it became clear that Hill Country Christian offered the highest academic and spiritual quality than others. My two children have attended for 3 years and I can attest that HCCSA is an exceptional school. The classical education is excellent, the integration of a Christian worldview is present in every subject, and the teachers are educators, mentors and role models.
I have 2 children at the school, & we have been at the school for 8 years. It has been a fantastic experience, & we would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a Christ-centered, classical education in a college-preparatory environment. The local public schools in this area are fine, but our family feels like our educational experience at Hill Country has been worth every single penny. No child or family is just a number; the staff takes the time to really get to know each one well. Our formerly shy child is thriving because she feels so comfortable and accepted. My kids want to stay here through high school. We hired a new headmaster two years ago, & he has provided great vision for the school , which has taken it to the next level.
I have loved being a part of Hill Country Christian School. The community, teachers, and staff are a wonderful part of my family's life. My kids are at school more waking hours than they are with me. So it is a great investment I am making in their lives as they grow, learn, and stretch their faith. This school is definitely worth every penny. I encourage you to check it out and enroll your kids into this great Christian school.
