First Year

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!

*applicant must be at least 18 years of age (or turn 18 during the first term of attendance) to enroll

Sample Teaching

Student Life



Outreaches are designed to train, challenge, and stretch the students as they share the Good News of Jesus in our local community through Bible clubs, elderly home visitation, youth group leadership, and more.


Home Fellowship

Every two weeks students spend time in different staff members' homes. This is a time for the students developed deeper relationships with the staff families.


Discipleship Group

Students and staff spend time together in a small group setting. This time is to sharpen and encourage one another in Christ through a book study, reading Scripture, and praying together.


Mission Trips

Fall Mission Trip
This is a five day trip at the beginning of October and 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 first hand 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. We typically host trips to Costa Rica and San Antonio.
