Miss Hall's School
Every Thursday morning sophomores, juniors, and seniors leave campus and head out to sites across the county, gaining valuable real-world experience in the process. At their sites girls practice skills they've been learning- advocating for a cause, speaking up when they know the answer, offering the bold idea in a staff meeting, taking the initiative, and accepting advice, for example.
New international students arrive on campus before returning girls, giving them a chance to acclimate before school starts. Classes are carefully selected to meet academic interests, and we offer varying levels of English as a Second Language. There are weekly college counseling meetings for each international senior. What better preparation for a multicultural, interconnected society than experiencing it first-hand!
Miss Hall's graduates attend small colleges and large universities in rural areas and big cities. We are pleased that most of our graduates stay at their first-choice school all four years, which means they made the right choice. 100 % of MHS graduates are accepted to college and each year receive over one million dollars in merit aid from colleges.
- Miss Hall's School augments a sophisticated college-preparatory curriculum and STEAM program 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.

Depending on their family circumstances, our Presidents received a wide range of primary and secondary schooling.

From time to time we all wonder how things might have turned out if circumstances and situations had been different. We apply that questioning to private schools.
