Tuition and fees cover only a portion of the total cost required to educate a student at Hillcrest Academy.  As is with most private schools, this revenue shortfall must be made up by donations and contributions.  Hillcrest conducts an Annual Fund Drive, a Fall Festival Cash Raffle ($200 per family), an Annual Spring Gala and Auction ($200 per couple with gift donation to the Silent Auction) and other activities and events to achieve the school’s revenue requirements. The Scrip profit fee along with the proceeds raised from the above mentioned fundraising activities, all go to support the school’s program.
