The Texas Hill Country School offers a comprehensive academic program in an innovative and creative atmosphere where students are taught to strive for their personal best. We make no assumptions about how students should learn, but instead, encourage students to learn in ways that are uniquely suited to them. We believe that the curriculum should be individualized based upon each student’s talents, abilities, and interests. All students should attain their peak academic performance, but we recognize that all students will not reach that goal on the same path. At the Texas Hill Country School, we start at the student’s current ability level and build upon that foundation. Throughout the academic process, we assist our students in gaining knowledge and self-confidence in a supportive, challenging setting.
The Texas Hill Country School faculty dedicate themselves to the development and success of each student. We custom design academic curriculum based upon each student’s specific needs. Students are taught to maximize their strengths and to employ tools and processes to minimize their weaknesses. Our small, interactive classrooms support a diversity of learning styles and the personal goals of each student.
In this environment, we offer individualized instruction, peer interaction, and group learning experiences through organized, meaningful activities and personal exploration. Instructors integrate subject matter into real-life situations and provide multiple opportunities for students to experience a sense of accomplishment, both in the classroom and in the community. The curriculum encourages creativity, problem-solving, and personal growth in a positive educational setting. Students are encouraged to take pride in their achievements and accept each failure as a step on the journey to success.
The Texas Hill Country School’s setting encourages discovery, growth, and achievement and optimizes our students’ success. The emotionally nurturing environment fosters the development of individual responsibility, teamwork, social responsibility, and self-discipline. Academic rigors are balanced with extracurricular activities that provide social interaction and sharing among peers.
Students are afforded multiple opportunities to discover their intellectual, emotional, physical, and social potential. With the constant personal attention of our committed faculty and staff, students develop a solid self-image and become prepared for the challenges ahead. We are committed to helping each student succeed in and out of the classroom.
