Our SchoolThe Hill School, The Family Boarding School, welcomes every student Home when they step on campus.

The Hill athletics model enables student athletes to compete in their respective club program and offers a robust strength and conditioning program in preparation for our season. Athletes can choose to play a winter sport or participate in our comprehensive strength and conditioning program. Winter lacrosse includes two days of team work and five days of strength, conditioning, and yoga. We will also enter in small-sided tournaments to increase game reps in the off-season.
