Community Overview

The Hillcrest community is richer for embracing difference and valuing families from many cultures. What unifies us is the deep desire to see children flourishing in their learning, in their social relationships, in their physical and mental wellbeing, and in their faith in our Lord Jesus Christ.

The triangle of student, home and College is essential. Key to this building and maintaining of community is ensuring there are clear communication channels, many opportunities for parents and grandparents to contribute to College life through the Community Association, learning programs and school activities and events, and social spaces for parents to make valuable connections with each other.

Our parent online portal “Crest Connect” is the primary platform for information and collaboration.
