Our School » History


At the height of the pandemic, Hill Country College Preparatory High School was founded and opened in August of 2020 with its foundational freshman class. Since then, we have grown to grades 9-12 and offer a variety of coursework aligned to College, Career and Military readiness and a Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math (STEAM) focus.
We currently offer 14 Advanced Placement (AP) courses, 2 UT OnRamps courses and 6 Dual Credit courses in partnership with Northeast Lakeview College. Our students compete at the UIL level in various clubs and organizations such as UIL academics, robotics, Cyberpatriots, VASE art and e-sports.
HCCPHS is a New Tech Network (NTN) school that facilitates learning through project-based learning. This means our students engage in rigorous coursework through project-based experiences allowing growth and application of content knowledge and 21st century skills, develop their socio-emotional abilities, and focus on college and career readiness.

The HCCPHS family upholds a culture of student inquiry, ownership, collaboration, and academic rigor.  We facilitate authentic, quality learning experiences that advance students’ post-secondary pathways and develop real-world interpersonal expertise.
