At Brook Hill we strive to develop the whole student. A balance of instruction is offered so that students grow in knowledge, skills, and wisdom through the perspective of a biblical worldview. This strong balance contributes to the academic success that abounds at Brook Hill.
THIS IS COLLEGE PREP
Whether one is gifted academically, artistically or athletically, the students at Brook Hill are provided countless opportunities to be challenged: Advanced Placement and Dual Credit courses, vocal and instrumental music programs, theater and visual arts classes plus a full complement of sports and interest-based clubs. Even outside of the traditional academic arena, students will find opportunities to achieve success.
In all facets of the educational experience – from the classroom to the practice field to the stage – Brook Hill students are continuously challenged to grow in Christ-like character. At the core of Brook Hill’s mission is the desire to prepare students for life including worldview training through Bible classes, Chapel and other leadership, service and social opportunities.
