Strategic Plan for Hilltop

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.
