HCA Elementary School


HCA integrates a thorough knowledge of God's love with a challenging academic environment. A Christ-centered curriculum that encourages critical thinking and effective skills application pursues the mastery of academic disciplines within a traditional classroom setting. 

HCA is an extension of the home and the church, seeking to partner with parents to provide a quality Christian education. 


As a ministry of Hillside Church of God, the Preschool has been serving families on the San Francisco Peninsula since 1959. Our elementary school began in 2003 with its first kindergarten class and now offers quality education through the eight grade. 

Teacher Requirements

Although teachers in a private, Christian elementary school are not required to have a valid California teaching credential, all but three of our teachers have their teaching credential. Our teaching staff have over forty-five years combined teaching experience, and our principal has twenty-seven years of classroom experience. We look very intently into every teacher's experience, and most importantly, we prayerfully consider every teacher's calling by God into the ministry of teaching.
