Eighteen 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 over 350 families through 25 amazing teachers and staff members while offering 60+ 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.
