In 2014, Hilltop’s Board of Directors voted to engage in a strategic planning process to build a road map for the next 3-5 years. A committee of current and alumni parents, board members, educators, and administrators was formed to gather input from the community and develop a plan that reflected the vision, mission, and values of the organization. In June 2015, Hilltop’s 3–5-year plan was approved by the board of directors. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic crisis, our strategic plan has been extended through 2022.
