Thank you for your interest in Hilger Higher Learning. We provide supplemental education, along with many social activities, for homeschool students in the greater Chattanooga area, through a variety of classes based on a Biblical worldview. Our classes are designed to enhance and help the home education process, while you and your child still have the freedom and flexibility home education provides; we are merely a support to what you are doing in the home. The combination of excellent teachers, solid curriculum, wonderful students and a variety of activities (inside and outside of the classroom) has created a dynamic environment that helps students not only academically and spiritually, but balances them socially as well. We’ve been offering homeschool courses in Chattanooga for 15 years now, and we love serving the Chattanooga homeschool community! If you are homeschooling in Chattanooga or near the Chattanooga area, we invite you to come be a part of the Hilger Higher Learning environment:
1. Excellent curriculum with a Biblical focus
2. College preparatory assessment from qualified teachers
3. Additional healthy accountability to a source outside of the home
4. Stimulating social interaction with high caliber peers
Hilger Higher Learning is led by an administration and qualified teachers committed to supporting your child’s education through a variety of homeschool classes in Chattanooga. It is our goal to reinforce the Biblical values being taught at home while providing a quality education. Although the parent is not the teacher of the courses we offer, the parent maintains authority over their child's learning and is responsible for holding their child accountable for completed assignments and preparing for tests/quizzes/labs. Our teachers simply serve as a support cast for the parents who have chosen to educate their child through the home.
We believe in the primacy of the parent as educator and the home as the center of education and relationship. We also believe the Lord provides spiritually gifted teachers as a resource to His people. Hilger collaborates with parents to create an educational hybrid which strengthens the homeschool. Our classes and extra-curricular activities supplement and complement the work of parents in educating their children. We come alongside families in the Chattanooga area, to serve and support them in the wonderful endeavor of homeschooling.
Fifteen years ago Carlee Hilger dreamed of teaching science to a group of children who had a desire to study, for the sake of learning. She found this group of children in the homeschool community within the greater Chattanooga area. In 1998, Hilger Higher Learning began with 45 students, 4 science classes, and one excited teacher. As more and more homeschool families asked for Chattanooga homeschool classes, Hilger quickly grew while maintaining Biblical integrity and academic excellence. Today Hilger serves nearly 300 families through 20 amazing teachers and staff members while offering 45+ exciting courses and workshops for elementary, middle and high school students. We also offer a host of extra-curricular activities! Carlee’s dream is still alive and real: teaching motivated students, from Christian families who possess an enthusiasm for learning.
