Hill Country Christian School of Austin was established in 1996 as a ministry of Hill Country Bible Church. The elder board of HCBC and a subcommittee of staff and church members led the strategy to build a Christ-centered, Classical, college-preparatory school to serve local families. Forty-nine students were enrolled the inaugural year. In 1998, the school consolidated with Hill Country Christian Heritage School, and in 2000 the first graduating class walked the stage.Hill Country Christian School students and faculty in 1996-1997

Since its inception, Hill Country has endeavored to prepare students to become Christ-like leaders in their schools, churches, communities, families, and vocations. Alumni serve in fields as diverse as law, the military, medicine, education, and business.
