Dr. Kenneth Barbour

Dr. Kenneth Barbour

Principal Emeritas

After retiring from the Pittsburgh public school system, Dr. Barbour obeyed a calling from God in 2001 to offer his extensive expertise, wisdom, spiritual leadership, and his heart of service to the children and families of HCA. Under his guidance and leadership, substantial improvements have been realized in the areas of curriculum, technology, staff development, and the physical building. He has safely seen the school through many changes and challenges, all the while placing the school’s mission of providing quality Christ-centered education to “train up a child in the way he should go” first, instilling in every child a desire to follow Jesus Christ, and equipping them to further the process of his/her future pursuits. Through the years Dr. Barbour has built a culture of harmony and respect at the school, earning himself a special place in the hearts of all who walk through the doors of HCA. We have appreciated his unrelenting pursuit of excellence. Only God knows the full measure of effort and generosity he has extended to the Hillcrest family in so many ways.
