Saint Hilary School is a faith-filled community where children receive a strong academic and spiritual foundation allowing them to develop their unique personal and intellectual gifts. Saint Hilary School's "whole child" approach to education provides students with not only an ambitious curriculum, but a safe and nurturing community in which children are encouraged to develop their academic, social, physical, and spiritual selves.
The educators of Saint Hilary School are committed to an academic program, which values the ability to think critically and explore creatively.
Our efforts to foster growth in the whole person are grounded in our Christian values, and supported by the latest education research available.

I love the attention given and the environment provided to my son at St. Hilary School. He regularly interacts with people of good moral character and learns much more of value than the basic curriculum. My son is becoming a responsible person of integrity. And he is developing a thirst for knowledge and a desire to maximize his abilities, which makes learning and growing that much easier. I look forward to some great years for him at St. Hilary.
