The Family Boarding School for Boys and Young Men: A talk about the standards Hill has set for the young women who, live, play, and study on our campus.
Undecided: The most common questions we are asked at this juncture in our young lives are: "What do you want to major in?" "What do you want to do with your life?" and "Who do you want to be?" These questions revolve centrally around our identity and our purpose, two things that we have not yet fully developed. Exploring our identity is a lifelong process, yet our culture dictates that we must know the answers prematurely. What's so wrong with being undecided, and why do we feel pressured to decide?

Good to Great: The Hill School is my home and the people in it are my family, and I love them like so. We strive for greatness in how we perform in class and extra-curriculars, but do we apply this same standard of greatness to how we treat one another?

Do Your Part: This world needs as many of us doing our part as much as possible. We have to become more intentional about seeking out our purpose and doing the work that comes with that. Ask yourself, what can I be doing to contribute my part? Before you know it there will be more goodness in the world around us because we are all participating in the true work of hope.
Black Lives: The (seemingly) never-ending struggle for the Black American to simply be heard, understood, loved, appreciated, and treated equally
The Power of Perspective Goes Beyond Oneself: Amidst our world of technology, social media, and even the Hill “bubble”, it is so easy for us to stay sheltered in our own mindset and beliefs, and not question the normalcy around us. That is why as Hill students - and to each other as individuals - we need to have perspective. Work to understand perspectives other than your own, and don’t be afraid to share yours with others.
