Welcome to Hill Country Christian School of Austin! We are delighted you are visiting our website to learn more about the unique curriculum, programs, and opportunities that distinguish Hill Country from all other schools in the region. You will discover a close-knit community where students are nurtured, challenged to develop their God-given gifts, and encouraged to discover and embrace their identity and purpose in Christ. As a Christ-centered school, we integrate faith and learning by teaching all subjects from a Christian worldview. As a Classical school, we emphasize mastery of the liberal arts, and we teach our students to value truth, beauty, and goodness. As a college-preparatory school, we offer a curriculum that meets or exceeds the admission requirements of the most selective colleges and universities in the nation.

Hill Country students are engaged in a community where lifelong learning is modeled by our faculty and where the life of the mind is held in high esteem. Our students are participants rather than spectators, and leadership opportunities abound. Please accept our invitation to visit the school and experience the Hill Country difference.
