Hillside Preschool and Academy's early childhood education program  serves children ages 6 weeks through the fifth grade. We are a non-profit school established to meet the needs of its congregation and the surrounding community. Our mission is to demonstrate a positive, loving and caring environment that educates, inspires and grows happy and confident Christian children. We are dedicated to creating a program that helps parents raise children with strong Christian values who possess all of the skills necessary to enter the next phase of their education. Our program is governed by the Preschool and Academy Board which consists of the Hillside United Methodist Church Senior Pastor, members of the congregation and members of the community.  


Our Academy offers an excellent education for Transitional 5 (T-5) students and all elementary grades Kindergarten- 5th.  


Our Preschool serves children ages 6 weeks through age 4.  We use a September 1st cutoff for birthdays.
