Approximately 20 percent of the students at The Hill are day students. Whether they drive themselves to school, carpool with other families, or ride the transportation provided by their local school district, day students are an integral part of The Hill School community. Indeed, for many local students, about the only thing that differentiates them from the boarders is that they don’t sleep on campus! Day students arrive for first period class and, while they may depart after their sports practices in the afternoon, many choose to stay through the evening to take advantage of the library, club meetings after dinner, extra help in the dorms with the faculty, or guest speakers or theatre productions in the Center For The Arts.
Day students look forward to fulfilling Hill's one-year boarding requirement, which allows them to grow even closer to their peers and to the faculty members who live on campus. Many day students investigate the possibility of boarding for more than one year as they quickly become involved in the myriad academic, athletic, and social offerings of the community. Questions about being a day student at The Hill should be directed to Mrs. Heidi Eccleston, day student adviser and assistant dean, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
