We have all heard it before, “education is the cornerstone of life” or “education is the cornerstone of our communities and our country”. Have you thought about what this actually means for our children? The best start in life is through learning. Without a good education, our choices in life are typically limited but with a great education, we can soar to new heights and succeed in wherever we decide to apply our talents.
We hold your child’s education securely in our hands. With excellent teachers, programs and small class sizes, we strive to give your child every opportunity to learn, grow, succeed and thrive in a fast-paced project-based learning environment with individualized techniques, tools and attention.
Hillside Academy initially began because our school director, Kim Gilreath, saw her daughter needing more from her school than what she was getting. Kim wanted her child to have hands-on learning, with individualized attention to her specific needs. Public education was not helping her grow or succeed with confidence.
In 2010, Hillside Academy started as private Christian school offering preschool, kindergarten and elementary classes through third grade. As word spread about the school, attendance grew and Hillside was able to hire several additional teachers with varying backgrounds to add diversity and knowledge to the school’s curriculum.
In a “whole child” approach, in addition to growing and expanding our project-based curriculum focusing on STEM, technology, agriculture and nutrition, we also offer many other programs to help our students become well-rounded in the arts, language, music, and athletics.
