Campus Life

The Hill School is a strong, compassionate, and supportive family community where the faculty genuinely knows each student. It is a place where students are challenged to grow and achieve things they never thought possible.

A close-knit, family environment is the hallmark of our diverse, global community. Daily family-style meals, family night in the dormitories, our traditional dress code, the Honor Code, and weekly Chapel meetings are just a few examples of what define and distinguish The Hill’s community. Traits like generosity, curiosity, emotional intelligence, listening, empathy, respectfulness, and kindness are evident in each Hill student.
