The Hill School

  • The mission of The Hill School is to prepare students from across the United States and around the world for excellence in college, careers, and life.
  • The Hill School combines a challenging liberal arts curriculum with clear moral direction and leadership training in a structured residential community.
  • Dedicated to the development of the minds, bodies, and souls of all Hill students, the School professes not only to describe the world in which they live but also to teach the best ways to live.
  • The Hill School's rigorous curriculum is founded firmly on the classical and Judeo-Christian traditions that value refinement of thought and fortification of character to liberate and charge the individual with responsibility to the common good.
  • The Hill School is committed to inculcating those fundamental traditions while developing in students the practical skills and core knowledge on which further learning must be based, then to leading students to a global perspective on the world and their places in it.
