Contact: Betty Starnes at (432) 570-7444

Parents interested in learning more about enrolling their students are invited to contact Hillcrest’s Dean of Students to set up an interview and preview of our school. Parents of the candidate are advised to bring their students most recent assessment documents and report card to the interview.

After the interview with the Dean of Students, parents will be invited to complete an application form. Once the application form with its accompanying “release of records” form are complete and returned to the Dean’s office, the Dean of Students will set a date for the prospective candidate to visit Hillcrest for one or two academic days at his or her current grade level.

Upon completion of the candidate’s visit, review of academic records, and recommendation from the teaching faculty, the candidate’s family will receive notification of a decision from the school.
