The First Year Program at His Hill is designed to move students towards an understanding of the indwelling person of Jesus Christ through the study and application of God’s Word. Our desire is not only to know Who He is, but also to know the reality of His life in us. “…For in Him all the fullness of deity dwells in bodily form, and in Him you have been made complete…” Colossians 2:9-10a
Students spend twenty-three hours in class per week learning about Christ who lives in them. Resident teachers and weekly guest speakers teach from both the Old and New Testament.
His Hill accepts applications from those who have successfully graduated from High School or hold a GED. The average age of our students is 18-25*, although it is not uncommon for older students to attend!
We run on a first come, first served basis with applications. If your application is submitted after we fill up, you will automatically be added to a waitlist.
*applicant must be at least 18 years of age (or turn 18 by October 31st) to enroll

Fall Service Project
This five-day trip at the end of September is part of the regular school program. The trip may involve physical work, church services, evangelism, and community outreach. It is always fun and full of great blessings. While this trip has proven to enhance the students’ relationship with each other, the greater purpose of the trip is to expose the students to the needs of others and to witness firsthand how Christ meets those needs through our obedience and service.
Spring Break Mission Trips
Students have the option of signing up for a Spring Mission Trip, which takes place in March during Spring Break. Cost is not included in tuition and ranges from $300 – $2000 depending on the nature and destination of the trip. More information about specific trips will be given at the end of the fall semester. Past trips have been to Albania, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, and the San Antonio Temple Tours trip.
