Hillcrest Middle School is proud to be known as the home of the “Wise Cats”!  The purpose of the Academic Challenge Team is to encourage our students to participate in a fun, but challenging team event that stresses the academic areas of science, social studies, mathematics, literature and current events.  Hillcrest is a part of the Olde English Consortium (OEC).  Its goal is to promote academic competition the same way we celebrate athletic competition.
