Philosophy / Mission

Hillcrest Academy is a public school whose raison d'ĂȘtre is to promote high academic standards and positive human values through a strong partnership with parents. These goals will be achieved with an emphasis on multiculturalism, multi-lingualism, science and mathematics.

Hillcrest Academy emphasizes acceptance and respect of others. Whether in academic, co-curricular or cultural activities, students are taught about different languages, religions, and cultures that make up our Canadian mosaic. It is with this understanding that tolerance and love of neighbour are infused in children.

Hillcrest Academy is in the second year of a three-year plan of implementing the program Vers le pacifique - the Pacific Path. It is the goal of this program to teach every child in our school the skills necessary for conflict resolution and peer mediation.

Hillcrest Academy has taken great strides in developing and implementing new curricular guidelines based on the educational reform being promoted by the MELS.
