An exceptional high school experience puts your child on the trajectory for lifelong success. College preparation is in full swing at this stage as students set measurable goals for the future and challenge themselves to high academic achievement. They move from the Logic stage to the Rhetoric stage of our Classical education model, focusing on effective application, communication, and reasoning. With the knowledge and understanding already developed, they begin to see the importance of true wisdom and the ability to think critically.
Hill Country Christian School’s college-prep program is excellent, exceeding admission requirements at the nation’s top universities. All students complete four years of math, science, English, and history, with opportunities to take AP and Honors classes. Courses distinctive to our school such as rhetoric, logic, debate, speech, and biblical worldview impart skills that are especially valuable in higher education. The 1:1 technology initiative ensures students are learning with the tools of their generation.
While academic achievement is important, we want students to leave our campus prepared to impact the world for Christ. All subjects are taught from a biblical perspective, with additional Identity Courses offered to foster critical thinking skills. Our Christ-centered community is a place where students can ask questions and be mentored by Bible-believing teachers, coaches, and staff. Students are also given opportunities throughout the year to be the hands and feet of Jesus. We emphasize community service and mission trips as important components of education.
A wide variety of special subjects and extracurricular activities make high school one of the most exciting times of life. Students can choose from elective courses, including dance, worship, studio art, theatre, yearbook, video production, and more. As students move into upper grades, they may elect to take SAT/ACT prep courses. Many of our 11th and 12th graders opt to take academic electives (such as extra math or science classes) in preparation for a specific college program. We encourage our high schoolers to take ownership of their education and to design a schedule that fits their goals. Our competitive athletic teams, fine arts programs, clubs, and service opportunities help students develop their gifts into lifelong passions. Students go on a community-building retreat every year.
