Support Hillside School!

The Hillside School & Learning Center has over 50 years helping students who have struggled in a traditional school setting. We are committed to continue to offer our programs for many more years to come! Please help support our important mission and keep our programs, small/intimate classes with highly qualified staff and faculty. Your donation makes the difference in young lives each day.  Every year, The Hillside School and Learning Center conducts an Annual Fund Drive, starting October 1. This year the goal is $45,000.00.



Annual Gala:
