Academic courses encourage increasing personal responsibility for learning with various approaches to teaching pedagogies complementing and enhancing each student’s unique abilities and interests. Our aspiration at Hills College is to engage students in quality learning experiences that are structured to stimulate and challenge. Becoming a community of learners oriented to lifelong learning as well as learning about how to think rather than what to think is of upmost importance, so that our students can continue to prepare for a life of worth and not simply a life of work.
