Frequently Asked Questions

Below are some frequently asked questions about Bible School. If you are unable to find the answer you are needing, please feel free to contact our office by either emailing: bibleschool@hishill.org or calling: (830) 995-3388


Are there any additional fees?

No, the totals listed on the fee sheets cover room & board, tuition, books, minor insurance coverage, and airport transportation at the start and end of each term. Optional fees include bike rental deposit, and extra-curricular outings.



Are scholarships available?

His Hill does not have scholarships available, although occasionally donations are designated towards a student in need. This gift is typically given to a student with financial need that has attended at least one semester. We encourage students to seek support from their local church, along with friends and family, presenting their need and desire to attend Bible School and ask for prayer. It is exciting to see how the Lord provides for each student.



Is there an application deadline?

No, applications are accepted until student accommodations are full. Prospective students are encouraged to apply by the end of June.



Is His Hill accredited?

His Hill is not accredited, but many Christian Colleges and Universities will accept credit for courses completed here. Columbia International University, Crown College and Oak Hills Christian College have developed a transfer agreement with His Hill.



What paperwork is needed for an international student?

Non U.S. citizens will need to complete a financial proof form as part of their application. After acceptance, international students are issued an I-20 form by His Hill. A $200 fee and I-901 form must then be completed and paid online by the student to immigration. International students from all countries other than Canada also need to apply for a student visa at the American Embassy in their country. The I-20 form must be presented to border officials upon entry into the United States. 



Can I send my deposit through a wire transfer?

Room deposits ($500) may be sent via wire transfer to His Hill. For account information please contact the office.



Which airport should I arrive to?

Plan to arrive at the San Antonio International Airport. Schedule your flights to arrive for the pick-up times of 2pm and 5pm on arrival day. Airport pick-ups at unscheduled times will incur a fee of $50.



Is there an age limit for students?

His Hill accepts applications to its First Year Program from students who have successfully graduated from High School or possess a GED, and who will turn 18 during the school year. The average age of our students is 18-25, although it is not uncommon for older students to attend!



What is the average number of students each year?

The student body averages between 40-60 students each semester.



Can a student apply for just one semester?

It is possible to attend either the fall or winter semester, depending on enrollment numbers, though you are encouraged to attend the full year if possible. Old Testament courses are mainly covered in the fall semester and New Testament courses in the winter semester. The full year of attendance provides a comprehensive study of the Bible and allows time for relationships on campus and at outreach to more deeply develop.



Where do students attend Sunday church services?

Students may choose to attend any local church body. Transportation is made available to Boerne Bible Church, where many of the staff attend. Charlie, our Director preaches there most Sunday mornings. The first Sunday of each month, an evening service and dessert time is held at His Hill for students and staff to fellowship together.



Is it necessary to have a car on campus?

A car is not necessary.  Transportation to church, outreach and a regular Wal-Mart trip is provided each week. Weekend trips are occasionally planned by the school for opportunities to explore the area. Still, students who can cover the expense of having a personal vehicle on campus appreciate the flexibility of personal transportation. 



Is internet available?

Yes, wireless internet is available for personal laptops at scheduled times in designated areas.



Do I need to bring my own printer?

If you would like to print assignments, you will need to supply your own printer. Schoolwork is not required to be typed.



Can guests visit?

Family and friends are invited to visit and attend classes and meals. Motel rooms are available on campus. Friends and siblings may stay in the dorm for up to three nights before moving to a motel room. Please contact the office for availability and cost.



Where can I do laundry?

Laundry machines are located in the basement of the main girls' dorm and in a separate building on campus for the boys. Machines are coin operated and change for quarters can be made in the office.



Is it possible to obtain a list of students accepted for the upcoming term?

In early July a list of students and contact info will be emailed in order to make travel arrangements and connect with other students before school begins.



What school supplies are needed?

A binder and lined paper, highlighter and pens are needed for classes.



How do students spend their free time?

Students spend free afternoons and weekends doing homework, taking part in recreational activities on the property, organizing student events or venturing off campus to explore the local area. Check out our Student Life page for a list of different student activity options.
