Hyde Mission: Develop Character to Discover Unique Potential

When students walk through Hyde’s gates after graduation, the most important thing they have learned is a set of principles: Courage, Integrity, Leadership, Curiosity, and Concern. Students test these virtues in their lives, allowing them to generate a set of beliefs and values that will guide them through their lives while helping them build confidence that comes from true self-awareness.

Character education and family partnership have been the core of Hyde's philosophy for over 50 years. The entirety of our curriculum and program offerings are infused with character-building skills and leadership development. Our Academics adhere to a college-preparatory curriculum and all students apply to and are accepted at four-year colleges.

We hope you explore our website and visit our campus so that you can experience first-hand that there is no school like Hyde and anything is possible when you become the best possible you.

    My experience with Hyde, as a graduate of the class of 2008, was a challenging atmosphere that held me and my peers accountable.

    There are so many great things to say. One of my favorite was how the teachers, both in-dorm staff and staff living close by in their homes, was their incredible ability to play host and be hospitable, feeling like family.

    I had a serious injury, and it was a teacher who made sure, walked with me into the ER, gave me a room in his house so he could check on me throughout the night.

    Hyde also attracts and creates artistic types and creative types. Everyone’s personality is so unique to their individual self, and Hyde is constantly pushing them to become the very best version of themselves.

    As Hyde continues to be the gold star for character education, I would recommend it to students needing some structure in their lives, and peer and staff support to be motivated for school, and for forming long term, lifetime relationships!

    I really like how Hyde school approaches teaching differently. With such small class sizes, students can get the help and attention from their teachers that you can't get in most other schools. The other thing I love about Hyde is their focus on Character Development. This is extremely unique to Hyde and using the core principles and guidelines, a student really becomes more well rounded and prepared for real life, not just more school. I would like to see however, more attention to daily life of students with more attention to dorm maintenance as well as more nutritional options available in the cafeteria. This is a concern for most public schools, but with the amount students pay for tuition, it seems they should have more nutritional meals offered.
    Their psychology program (summer 1995) approach is one on the only effective ones that you'll find anywhere. There were other strange approaches that I knew would have detrimental effects on me if i stayed any longer than the 6 week program, in the way that it twists a young person into a form not in alignment with what they should be. The effect it has is they'll behave, but theyll be out of touch with who they are, will be missing a part of themselves. It led to a breakdown in me a month or two after attending the summer program.
    In summation, gave me the psychological tools and knowledge (of how it works) to heal myself and be psychologically healthy throughout life, but also psychologically cuts off a young person from themselves, and molds them into someone that behaves but cuts off a part of themselves while growing.
