Students have the opportunity to explore their talents on campus, through organised community events and activities.

Hillcrest provides a robust Christian education, in a community-focussed culture, where every child is treated as a treasured member of our College, each bringing their own unique God-given gifts and talents.
'Excellence in Christ'
The mission of Hillcrest Christian College is to provide quality education and to deliver to society young people who:

- Have discovered the truth of the Gospel of Jesus and are prepared to live this truth in the service of God;
- Have knowledge to discern what is good and have the skills and the spirit to commit themselves to action for a better society;
- Demonstrate self-discipline, integrity and compassion in their lifestyle; and
- Are prepared for success in personal life, in further education and in employment.


Hillcrest offers an extensive bus service for students travelling to and from the College each day and uses their fleet of modern, air-conditioned buses. All buses are equipped with three-point seat belts and are installed with cameras for safety. There are seven different bus routes travelling South to Casuarina Beach in Northern NSW, West to the Gold Coast Hinterland and North as far as Runaway Bay. We also provide trips to and from the Varsity Lakes Train Station.

Principal's Image

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 36 years ago.

In 2016, we unveiled the College's 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.

Three years into this Strategic Plan, and we can honestly say that Hillcrest is flourishing. Our reputation in the community is stronger than ever before, and our enrolments have increased significantly in recent years, with waiting lists across most of our Year levels. 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 at Hillcrest Christian College, and all that is He continues to do within our College community.

“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.
