The Girls' Leadership Project (GLP) at Miss Hall's School is the ongoing exploration of what best helps girls become powerful, undeterred agents of their own futures. We believe that girls are the highest and best authorities on their own experience and that in order to lead in the future, they should begin by leading now.
Whatever a girl is passionate about can come to life at Miss Hall's. It's a community in which girls from around the world share their breakthrough ideas and opinions, where they contribute to the community and to the conversation.
We encourage a student's life-long relationship with the arts, challenging her to find her own confident artistic voice and to gain a respect for artistic tradition based on our belief that the arts are an intrinsic part of the human experience.
The Athletic Department at Miss Hall's instills in student-athletes the values of fitness, teamwork, and competition while inspiring each girl to master physical skills, envision her potential, strive to attain goals, build confidence, and experience the power of community pride.
Horizons is Miss Hall's School's experiential, service-learning and internship program that provides MHS students with opportunities to volunteer and intern each week at local social service and cultural organizations, businesses, and professional offices. Horizons allows MHS students to explore areas of college majors and career interests and pitch in to make their community a better place.
We hear it over and over again, from girls who live right down the road and from girls who live halfway around the world: "The first time I visited, I immediately felt part of the community".
We value challenge in a nurturing environment. We also value curiosity, clear thinking, and academic accomplishment. We encourage the development of resilience, determination, and self-confidence for a lifetime of learning in a world of constant change.
Miss Hall's School augments a sophisticated college-preparatory curriculum with two innovative, nationally acclaimed programs. Through Horizons, girls work off-campus to hone communication and problem-solving skills, refine ethical positions, strengthen financial literacy, and explore interests for college majors and careers.
Through the Girls Leadership Project, girls design programs and workshops around the themes of "voice" and leadership.

The School sits on 80 acres in Berkshire County and employs 80 women and men who teach, administer the program, and secure and maintain the buildings and grounds. Governance of the School is through a 28-member Board of Trustees comprised of alumnae and current and past parents.
