Serving the San Mateo County Peninsula since 1959 Hillside Christian Academy (HCA) provides a setting where your child can feel safe and confident in a stimulating learning environment which fosters an atmosphere of love and warmth, encouraging your child to thrive intellectually, morally, and spiritually. HCA is a ministry of Hillside Church of God and we believe spiritual growth is essential to the complete development of each child.

Our curriculum includes daily Bible lessons and weekly Chapel where children learn about God’s love and grace through our Lord Jesus Christ. We have a very diverse student population with students coming from all over the Bay Area. HCA does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admission policies, scholarship, athletic, and other school-administered policies.


We assist parents in developing their children 2½ to 5 years old academically, socially, physically and spiritually through a variety of activities and experiences.
