From The Hill School

The Hill School is a coeducational independent boarding and day school for students in grades 9-12 and post-graduates. Founded in 1851, Hill is a small and close learning community—a place where our reputation for academic excellence is based upon a challenging and expansive curriculum rooted in a strong liberal arts legacy; a faculty of highly qualified, dedicated teachers and advisers; and a structured atmosphere that blends high expectations with meaningful support. At Hill, faculty and students from around the country and the world live and learn together -- they treat each other as family and form lifelong friendships. Daily family-style meals, family nights in dormitories, and weekly Chapel meetings are just a few examples of what define and distinguish The Hill’s community. As a school, we value principles of honesty, genuineness, empathy, respectfulness, and kindness; character is not so much taught as lived, as represented in the School’s motto, “Whatsoever things are true.”
