About Us

Core Tenets

The Hill School prepares young men and women from across the country and around the world for college, careers, and life. Within a family school environment and a rigorous liberal arts curriculum, we challenge our young people to work hard; think and reason; be fulfilled; serve the common good; and be prepared to lead as citizens of the world, uniquely guided by our motto, “Whatsoever Things Are True.”

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. Purposefully smaller than most peer schools, The Hill originally was known as The Family Boarding School, and today's diverse students, parents, alumni, and visitors continue to cite Hill's definitive feeling of family.
The Hill School provides 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. Students’ leadership and time management skills are further developed through high-caliber extracurricular options.
The Hill School values and nurtures 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 the School's revered motto, "Whatsoever things are true."
The Hill School’s reputation for academic excellence is based upon a challenging liberal arts curriculum, innovative teaching, and a highly qualified, dedicated faculty. Intellectual growth is cultivated through a noteworthy breadth of advanced and honors course offerings.
The Hill School is proud of its history and traditions, unique 160-year-old threads that connect the quality of Hill's past with the vigor and excellence of its future.
