    Absolutely loved everything about the Hilltop. From everyone knowing my name, to the teachers and facilities, everything was top notch. Felt as though I really grew in confidence because of the relationships with my teachers and classmates.

    Food was top notch and had a lot of variety, very important in the boarding school world! Thoroughly enjoyed the array of options in terms of events and student life activities that were held.

    Highly recommend visiting Salisbury!

    My son LOVED his four-year experience at Salisbury. He was admitted to his first choice college, and feels he is exceedingly well-prepared early on in his college experience. He really enjoyed the strong mentoring he received from teachers and coaches and especially loved his athletic experience, playing on great teams in all three seasons. SAT prep was excellent, as was college advising. My son remains incredibly close to his Salisbury brothers! Great investment.
    Salisbury School is where boys go and emerge as self confident, ethical, thoughtful maturing men. I witnessed this first hand with my son who graduated in 2013. There is a true sense of brotherhood at Salisbury which is fostered by the caring faculty and administration. The Head of School, Chisholm Chandler, leads by example and is incredibly approachable, especially to the students. While on the "Hilltop" my son was challenged academicall and athletically and learned the importance of humility and giving back to the community. I can not say enough about this incredible school. There is huge value for a boy in his teenage years to be part of a "Band of Brothers." Believe what they say. It's all true!
