Take a Parent Tour
Observing a typical day at Hillbrook will give you a closer look at our Mission in action. Tours are held at 9 AM throughout the school year. Tours for junior kindergarten through 2nd grades are held on Thursdays and tours for 3rd through 8th grades are held on Wednesdays. Tours are intended for parents/guardians only, and we welcome and encourage student visits throughout the admission process, including Open House events and School Visits. Parent Tours require an advanced reservation, which you can make online through our Admission Portal.


Join us for an Open House
Experience our vibrant community and campus with your family. Please
note that our Open House has a scheduled program that begins at 9 AM and concludes at 12 PM. Families will have an opportunity to visit classrooms, chat with our specialist teachers, and hear from Hillbrook alumni. Grade-level specific Open Houses are held in January.
