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."
