  • 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.
