Christ-centered education using the Principle Approach

At Hill Country Academy our classroom is stimulating which challenges students every day to reach for excellence.  The interactive curriculum develops creativity, confidence and character.  Our small student to teacher ratio guarantees personalized individual instruction and helps every child recognize his or her worth in God.

Our classroom is a "schoolhouse" approach, combining our Kindergarten through 4th grades, which is perfect for families who are looking for a home school environment for their child, but are unable to provide education in the home. Work, busy schedules, and other obligations may prevent your family from teaching your children at home which is why we strive to create that homeschool, small student-to-teacher ratio at Hill Country Academy.  A schoolhouse method to teaching can be far more effective than the traditional class in which students of equal experience and ability are grouped together. The schoolhouse model takes advantage of differing student abilities and learning styles and combines stations, daily activities, interactive lessons, and allows for more one-on-one time for the teacher and students.

The Principle Approach

The Principle Approach is a unique education style combining the modals of Biblical, Hebraic education with Colonial American.
