The Hill School motto: "Whatsoever things are true."  

The School motto is inscribed in the arch of The Alumni Chapel

“Whatsoever things are true” is The Hill’s motto, and truth is the School’s highest ideal – truth in the classroom, truth between teacher and student, and truth between the student and his or her peers. Hill curricula, policies, and procedures are predicated on truth, honesty, and trust. "Whatsoever things are true" is an excerpt from St. Paul's letter to the Philippians (Philippians 4:8). In this passage, St. Paul urges his readers to focus their actions virtuously on "whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report ...."
All Hill students are expected to govern themselves in accordance with the Honor Code:
  • Our word is an expression of the strength of our character.
  • We respect the property of others as we respect our own.
  • Our academic work is an honest expression of our ability.
