Excellence in Christ

Hillcrest is guided by our ethos of ‘Excellence in Christ’, where students are taught by exceptional Christian teachers who are committed to giving each child the best possible educational experience, while nurturing their individual talents and interests, and inspiring them to aim for excellence. We offer many highly innovative facilities that have been purpose-built to cater for our breadth of curriculum studies, and a range of cocurricular programs. As a College, we have an excellent reputation for our inclusive community, and our consistent success in NAPLAN, Performing Arts, and Sport.
Our approach to education is holistic, innovative and empowering, and is anchored by our commitment to serving our Lord Jesus Christ.

Welcome from the Principal
Hillcrest Christian College has been embarking on an exciting journey of growth, innovation, and change in recent years. We are a College that is embracing and redefining 21st Century education, while standing firm on the core values envisioned by our founders over 35 years ago.
In 2016, we unveiled our five-year Strategic Plan, a plan to cement and connect our history and College ethos, with a bold and exciting future. A plan that would see Hillcrest provide a learning environment of world-standing, where every student would be equipped to succeed spiritually, educationally, and in their extracurricular pursuits.
Two years into this Strategic Plan, and I can honestly say that Hillcrest is flourishing. Our reputation in the community is stronger than ever before, and our enrolments have doubled over the past three years. Our classrooms are filled with incredible young men and women imbued with character, confidence and concern for their community. Our campus now offers some of the most amazing educational facilities imaginable.
We have been blessed beyond measure, and give glory to God for all that He began here 35 years ago, and all that is He continues to do at Hillcrest Christian College.
“For no one can lay a foundation other than the one which is laid, which is Jesus Christ.” 1 Corinthians 3:11
If you are considering Hillcrest for your child, I would personally love to meet you and I offer regular tours of our Campus to give parents the opportunity to explore our facilities and ask me any questions they have about our College. I hope to meet you in the future!

Executive Head of College
