A Reminder

In the daily hustle and bustle, when tests and homework and extracurricular activities seem to take precedence over everything, students sometimes forget the real reason they are here. Thankfully, Hillcrest has almost weekly chapel services which seek to remind Upper School students that our true priorities in life are to love God and to love others.  And when students take on the responsibility of leading  worship and sharing the burdens of their heart, it becomes evident that no other school is like Hillcrest. Giving students the freedom — and constant encouragement — to share their faith in a world that seeks to silence Christians more and more is the true mission of our school.

As Thanksgiving approaches, we ask the entire Hillcrest family to remember our school in your prayers: Remember to thank the Lord for the work he is doing on our campus and beyond, and ask him to bless our students, faculty, and staff so that we may continue to “Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.” – Matthew 5:16

See You at the Pole 2017

See You at the Pole™, the global day of student prayer, began in 1990 as a grass roots movement with ten students praying at the flagpole in front of their school. More than twenty years later, millions have joined the movement and now pray on their campuses on the fourth Wednesday each September.

See You at the Pole™ is a rally which allows students to meet before school to lift up their friends, families, teachers, school, and nation to God. SYATP brings students in every time zone all around the world together, as they humble themselves before God and commit to unity in Christ and prayer for their generation.

Patriot’s Day 2017

“I well remember them, and my soul is downcast within me.
Yet this I call to mind and therefore I have hope:
Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed,
for his compassions never fail.
They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.” – Lamentations 3:20-23 (NIV)
