The College was conceived as a community project. A company was established, called Hillcrest Schools (Pvt) Ltd. It had established the Preparatory school. In 1983, the company started construction of the college. Plans were submitted to the Ministry of Education for approval in October 1984 and the laying of electrical and other services to twelve hectares commenced. In January 1985, the College opened its doors as an ‘Upper Top’, a Rural Day Secondary School. The college started with two classes of twenty-five Form 1 pupils.
