Whether they are participating in our foundation years’ programs or following the many learning pathways at Senior Secondary, taking to the sports field, learning a musical instrument, or undertaking service to the wider community, every student at Hillcrest is challenged to pursue excellence and achieve their personal best but, just as importantly, to learn how to work collaboratively. Our learning programs align with the Victorian Curriculum and Qualifications Framework.
Our safe, caring and nurturing environment ensures that all students are provided with the opportunity to make friends, take risks, learn skills, grow in compassion and courage. Together we learn what it is to love, worship, obey and serve God – Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
