Hillside is a private Christian school with a mission to build future innovators through a project-based learning approach emphasizing academics, problem solving, creativity, social skills, faith and character development.
We provide students with the core academic skills needed for the next level in their education using the philosophy that one size does not fit all. Our play-based preschool program, with targeted learning objectives, gives preschoolers the start they need; our elementary curriculum builds on this foundation by engaging students in hands-on learning so that by middle school our students are focusing on real-life application of the knowledge and skills they have learned.
Our STEM based curriculum is integrated into an interdisciplinary, hands-on learning approach with a variety of specialized programs including fine arts, foreign language, creative movement and music. Specialized learning programs for children with dyslexia and other learning difficulties are also available.
The Hillside Academy student will be encouraged to become global citizens, through community service projects, our annual giving market and with stewardship programs. We strive to make our classrooms safe places where students can accept their mistakes and talk freely about their ideas.
