This is Hill

Community

The Hill School is an exceptionally close learning community, a place where faculty and students treat each other as family – where teachers know and care for their students as individuals and students form lifelong friendships.

Academic Excellence

The Hill School’s reputation for academic excellence is based upon a challenging liberal arts curriculum, innovative teaching, and a highly qualified, dedicated faculty.

Balanced Structure

We provide meaningful, balanced structure in a supportive atmosphere where shared community expectations sharpen each student’s focus, promote personal responsibility, build self-confidence, and form the foundation for future achievement.

History & Traditions

The Hill School is proud of its history and traditions, unique 168-year-old threads that connect the quality of Hill's past with the vigor and excellence of its future.

Values & Principles

We value and nurture principles of honesty and genuineness, courtesy and respect, and gratitude and concern for the greater good. At The Hill, character is not so much taught as subtly lived, as represented in our motto, "Whatsoever things are true." 

Voices of Hill

By engaging with students in the classroom, in the pool, and in the dorm, I can explore and cultivate their strengths together, leading to stronger trust and brighter light bulb moments!

One of the key factors in finding personal happiness is surrounding yourself with people who care for you; The Hill genuinely is a place where everyone cares for each student.

Patrick Lake, Ph.D.

There is a sense of community here, a belief in educating the whole person, and I make it my conscious mission to get the very best out of my students on a daily basis, whether we are studying the works of past geniuses, running a workout, or sorting out an everyday moral dilemma.

I love Hill because of its close-knit, supportive community. I can truly say that I feel at home here. Everyone - students and faculty alike - are so nice and welcoming. They all genuinely care about you and your wellbeing.
