A Message from our Principal

Hello friends of Hillcrest Christian Academy!  It is my honor to serve the Lord by serving all the students, families, faculty and staff of this wonderful school.


Mrs. PrindleHello friends of Hillcrest Christian Academy! It is my honor to serve the Lord by serving all the students, families, faculty, and staff of this wonderful school. We are committed to both the intellectual and spiritual growth of our students, as we seek to watch each of our precious young people become the person that God has called him or her to be. Excellence is God’s standard, and so it is ours. (Philippians 4:8) We prayerfully apply the best educational practices, as we model a life of discipleship, and infuse instruction with a biblical worldview.

Jesus is the Creator and Sustainer of the universe (Colossians 1:16-17), and it brings Him glory when we apply our foremost efforts to learning and growing in His world and His kingdom. He has a purpose for each child and teen, and we at Hillcrest Christian Academy long to do our part in helping these young ones grow. We commit to the Lord our plans of excellence in education, and we stand on the promise that God will bring His success. (Proverbs 16:3) 

It is our joy to partner with parents to see young people grow and engage the culture with a truly biblical worldview with whatever calling, gift, or talent that the Lord has provided each one. We envision students being trained to have a dynamic impact in their world. We long for them to be on the offense, not the defense. God gifts each one to fulfill His intention.  

We are firmly dedicated to ongoing professional and spiritual development for our faculty and staff, as we lead by example, demonstrating that learning is a lifelong pursuit. As we seek to please the Lord in the sacred calling of Christian schooling, we dedicate ourselves to being the best we can, as God gives us wisdom and strength. (Colossians 3:23) 

I welcome your input and look forward to meeting you! By God’s grace, Hillcrest Christian Academy is – and will continue to be – a beacon of light and a change agent in the world! 

In Christ’s Service –

Shelli Prindle
