Purpose

We educate, inspire, and prepare the next generation of leaders to impact the world for Christ.

History

Hill Country Christian School was established in 1996 as a ministry of Hill Country Bible Church. The HCBC elder board and a subcommittee of staff and church members led the strategy to build a Christ-centered, Classical, college-preparatory private school. 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.

The school serves over 570 students in preschool through twelfth grade and offers a comprehensive curriculum that includes numerous academic, athletic, and fine arts programs. Hill Country endeavors to prepare students to become Christ-like leaders in their schools, churches, communities, families, and vocations.

Beliefs

Core Values

At Hill Country Christian School of Austin, we are:

Focused on Christ. We believe knowing Jesus Christ and choosing to service Him as Lord are essential for redemption and regeneration, and that this choice is necessary for human beings to realize their purpose and full potential (Col. 1:15-20: Heb. 1:1-3; Rom. 3:21-24; 2 Cor. 5:17-21; Prov. 3:5-6).

Rooted in Scripture. We acknowledge the truth and authority of Scripture, and hold it to be foundational. As such, we strive to teach all subjects from a biblical worldview, based firmly in the revelation of God’s Word (2 Tim. 3:16-17, 2 Pet. 1:19-21; Matt. 4:4, 7, 10; 2 Tim. 4:2).

Cultivating Leaders. We believe in cultivating students to be humble servant-leaders preparing them to impact others through selfless service. Becoming such a leader requires a firm identity in Christ, an understanding of culture and development of a unique, compelling voice (John 13:12- 15; Mark 10:45; Phil. 2:3-11; 2 Cor. 3:2-3).

Promoting Scholarship Informed by Classical Thought. We inspire academic curiosity, growth, and confidence in students as we train them throughout the learning process to think logically, communicate effectively, develop character and value scholarship (Prov. 9:10; Rom. 12:2; Matt. 22:37; 1 Kings 4:29-34).

Forging Authentic Relationships. We invite families into Christian community, in which we strive to live with integrity, resolve disputes biblically, hold each other accountable in love, and build deep, meaningful relationships, as we work together to raise the next generation for Christ (Heb. 10:23-25; 1 Thess. 2:8; Col. 1:28-29; Matt. 18:15-17).

Making Disciples. We embrace the biblical call to “make disciples.” This includes teaching biblical truth, sharing the love of Jesus, training older students and providing opportunities for them to mentor younger students, and encouraging one another in prayer and the power of the Holy Spirit to take the next step in our journey (Matt. 28:18-20; 2 Tim. 2:2; Mark 12:28-31; 1 Cor. 15:3-8).
