We`re nestled in an ideal part of the East Coast close to New York City, Philadelphia, Baltimore, and our nation`s capital of Washington, D.C. - a location uniquely convenient for both day and boarding students.
  • There`s also plenty to do right outside our front door, as we`re in the heart of the "Coolest Small Town in America." Lititz, Pennsylvania, offers cozy cafs, world-class candy shops, gourmet restaurants, several parks, an abundance of fascinating history, and so much more. Our students always find fun and exciting new places to explore in town with their friends!
  • At Linden Hall, we`re curious, passionate, and engaged. Students love to collaborate, grapple with big ideas, innovate to make our world better, and have FUN.They embrace a variety of interests that inspire them to explore the arts, sports, STEM, or riding - some of them at world-class levels!

  • A wise student once said, "The `typical` Linden Hall student is gloriously atypical." There is no best type of student for Linden Hall. Instead, our girls join a student body that is a diverse blend of boarding students from afar and day students from nearby, artists and entrepreneurs, dreamers and builders, top athletes and inspiring artists, rocket builders and international travelers, and, of course, best friends.

My daughter has been attending for almost 2 years now. This school is wonderful! I love every teacher, and all the staff., and our Head of School is a gift to LH and our daughter. They all believe in your student and help them reach their highest potential. They interact with the students in an intelligent way. The workload is rigorous but students have full support to reach their goals. Students are mature, well-spoken, and highly involved in activities. The environment is peaceful. The students respect and care for each other across all grades.

My daughter started at Linden Hall in 6th grade and graduated 2 years ago. It was an amazing experience for her. She took advanced classes that weren't even offered at her public school. The teachers were well supportive, knowledgeable, and caring. I do not feel that my daughter would have had the same great experience at any other local school.
