Hillside Christian Academy is starting its new Transitional Kindergarten program for the 2022-2023 school year! Open enrollment for the 2022-2023 school year has already begun!

Transitional Kindergarten (TK) is the first of a two-year Kindergarten experience. We use a high-quality curriculum designed to specifically address these school readiness skills:

  • Self and Social Development
  • Self-Regulation
  • Language and Literacy
  • Mathematical Developmental Domains
  • Poetry
  • Music
  • Bible

Hillside Christian Academy’s TK class is a wonderful opportunity for children who need a bridge from Pre-school to Kindergarten. Your child will be in a loving, nurturing, and Christ-centered setting to help them continue to develop socially, academically, and spiritually. Bible instruction in TK focuses on familiar Bible lessons presented from both Old Testament and New Testament, emphasizing God’s love.

TK offers a full day program and students must be enrolled 5 days/week. The morning will primarily consist of learning academics and social skills through centers and group time, while the afternoon will focus more on rest and structured play activities.

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. Hillside Christian Academy 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.

Elementary School

Hillside Christian Academy students receive a quality education with low student-teacher ratios in a Christ-centered environment that prepares them to excel in today’s world.

Middle School

Sixth grade is a big transition as students take more responsibilities, to serve, and develop their gifts both in and out of the classroom.  Hillside Christian Academy helps them grow as christian young men and women with an academically challenging curriculum and a christian world view.

Before/After School Childcare

Childcare is available both before and after school hours to accommodate parent's work schedule.

Summer Program

Summer classes and activities are offered during summer break to keep your students sharp. Details will be available later in the school year.

Hillside Christian Academy provides a Christ centered curriculum that encourages critical thinking and effective skills application.
