True & Faithful
Expanses of green open spaces greet you as you stroll around the grounds of Hillcrest’s 140 acres. A feeling of excitement and expansion is generated when viewing the brand new facilities in the 2-storey Basketball Stadium, Early Learning Centre, Discovery and Performing Arts Centre. .
Quality and care are the hallmarks of a Hillcrest education. All that we do centres on having our students become women and men of vibrant faith, sound character, lifelong learners, and active citizens.
A leader in Christian education in Victoria, Hillcrest Christian College is a non-denominational College with an open enrolment catering for over 1400 students from Early Learning to Year 12. Our well-appointed modern campus is uniquely located on an expansive 138 acre precinct that also accommodates the Ayr Hill Equestrian Centre, an Environmental Centre, and Rivercrest Christian College (IB program).
Whether they are participating in our foundation years’ programs or comprehensive VCE courses, taking to the sports field, playing a musical instrument, or undertaking service to the wider community, every student at Hillcrest is challenged to pursue excellence and achieve their personal best but, just as importantly, to learn how to work collaboratively.
As you move through this website, you will gain an understanding of the many ways in which we provide a family oriented learning community noted for its commitment to the Christian gospel, cultural diversity, innovative teaching, broad curriculum, and extensive co-curricular programs.
I warmly invite you to visit our campus to experience firsthand a caring community offering quality education.

Students are given opportunities to taken on leadership roles and to be involved in a student senate. The Senate team is an elected group of student representatives, who seek to provide programs, support and be a voice for the rest of the students in the College. From this group School Captains are selected.
All teachers have a pastoral role; however, each class is also supported by a core teacher who will focus on that group. The Core Teacher model and Homeroom approach enhance student learning by enabling them to make connections across curriculum areas, provide students with pastoral care, stability and an environment that supports learning and fosters student/teacher relationships. This model is in place to support students right across the College from Prep to Year 12. Chaplaincy staff support the teachers, offering help with counselling, referrals, advice, Christian education and evangelism.
