Director of the Academy

Dr. Kenneth Barbour served Hillcrest Christian Academy as its principal for 12 years before retiring in 2016.  This year, he steps back in as Interim Principal before taking a more permanent role as Director of the Academy.  When a newly hired principal had to resign unexpectedly, Dr. Barbour could not bear to see the school without a leader, especially in these tumultuous times. So he stepped in, and will serve willingly until a new principal is hired. Afterward, he will leverage his 40 years of administrative and teaching experience in the public schools, as well as his previous tenure at HCA, to continue the tradition of excellence in academics that Hillcrest is known for.
