The Hill has a rich tradition of hosting postgraduate students (PGs) for an “extra year of high school.” The program is best designed for candidates showing academic promise and maturity who are seeking to strengthen their educational preparation before entering college. Students will benefit from living away from home for the year with more freedoms and responsibilities, but with more structure and supervision than a college community. From Orientation day through Commencement, postgraduate students work together and with the PG coordinator, Chris Bala (email@example.com), Hill associate director of admission, to support each other and ensure that each student maximizes his or her experience. At the same time, postgraduates fully integrate into the sixth form (senior) class and the entire student body, in the classroom, in the dormitory, and on the athletic fields and the stage, and in other extracurricular activities.
Postgraduate students come to Hill for a variety of reasons. While some come because they have exceeded the level of courses offered at his or her current high school, others come to pursue a higher level of athletics, music, or other artistic endeavors. Many students also are interested in a transitional year away from home before heading off to college. Regardless of the individual reasons, all postgraduate students are looking for the combination of academic, social, and physical growth that a year at The Hill will provide.
