Hillcrest Academy is proud to announce that we have been granted Full Accreditation by the National Association for Christian Education
National Association for Christian Education is a Christian accrediting body with a mission to be an outside, objective organization that evaluates school ministries and stipulates that, “This school does what it says it will do in its ministry.”
This year, Hillcrest Academy participated in the Downtown Palatka Christmas Parade. We are extremely proud of our students and their dedication to our float. It was a candy land theme but with a spiritual twist. Our gingerbread house was changed into a gingerbread church and our banner read “Jesus, the sweetest name I know“.
On Nov 7, 2016, the staff attended the Christian Educator’s Convention held in St Petersburg, FL. These conferences are held each fall and offers the staff an in-service update to best meet the needs of our students. They have general sessions that everyone attends throughout the day and they also have break-out sessions where each staff member chooses a lecture they are interested in. Some of the topics this year included scoring violations, achievement testing, and object lessons. We always leave the conference with a renewed spirit and ideas to try with our students.
