Who We Are


The Hillier School was founded in the 1960s by Highland Park Presbyterian Church as a special ministry dedicated to teaching children with learning differences.The school provides a much needed accredited program for students who demonstrate a significant discrepancy between intellectual potential and academic performance.With an emphasis on reading, writing and spelling, the Hillier faculty strives to raise academic achievement through multisensory, success-oriented teaching techniques and small, structured classes.Small class sizes of typically six students, offered in a Christian context, create an environment uniquely suited to developing the whole child. A Christ-centered environment fosters self-respect and competence in our students which we believe to be essential to their future success in life.

The Hillier School is a state-accredited school, providing a full-academic program for the student with dyslexia and related language learning differences. Students are taught through a structured, multisensory teaching approach and receive classes in reading, English, Math, Social studies, Science, Physical Education, Art, Computer, Music and Character Building. In addition, principles of the Christian faith are taught during our weekly chapels.
