Description

Hill provides each student with an exceptional, inclusive learning experience within a family environment that promotes truth as the foundation for intellectual, personal, and social growth. At Hill, faculty and students from around the country and the world live and learn together — they treat each other as family and form lifelong friendships. Daily family-style meals, Family Nights in dormitories, a traditional dress code, an Honor Code, and weekly Chapel meetings are just a few examples of what define and distinguish Hill’s community .As a school, we value and nurture principles of honesty, genuineness, generosity, empathy, respectfulness, and kindness; character is not so much taught as lived, as represented in the School’s revered motto, “Whatsoever things are true.”
