The foundation of our approach to educating your child is our secure and nurturing school environment. We create this environment through appreciation for individual needs, respect for the children in our care and support for their values and opinions.
Through this approach Hills Adventist College will help your child to reach their full potential whilst developing self-esteem and an appreciation for the needs of others.
We believe developing character is the foundation of lifelong success. That’s why our Middle School emphasises service and Christian values alongside academic, artistic and sporting excellence.
We believe in developing confident youth who know their purpose, have the strength to lead and have hearts for service. That’s why we give our Senior students opportunities to discover, lead and serve in the local community and even on overseas service trips.

The transition from primary school to high school can be a stressful and sometimes difficult one. And we believe that our approach greatly benefits students as it eases the transition between the typical primary and high school environments.

This approach is unique and we strongly believe that each student benefits from this method of teaching as it proactive and encourages them to think more about each topic, which results in greater academic for the student. The students at Hills Adventist College will also be involved in a resilience program that equips each student and prepares them to face life’s challenges.
