Community Service

One of our community's defining characteristics is a sense of compassion and commitment to serving our neighbors, both locally and globally.  Community service gives all members of the school an important opportunity to see the effect their lives can have on those in need. Our service projects reflect the particular concerns of our students, teachers, and parents.  Some projects are annual traditions; others arise out of our community's response to crises.

Nearly 100 students and parents representing every grade in the school gathered in the Chapel to prepare gift packages for Syrian refugee families who have recently settled in New Jersey. The effort was part of the school's "Helping Hands" initiative, which set aside three Saturdays throughout the year for various service efforts.
A schoolwide day of service united students and faculty in service to honor our patronal saints, Hilda and Hugh.
St. Hilda's & St. Hugh's Day of Service began with a stirring Chapel presentation by David Miliband, P '22, president and CEO of the International Rescue Committee. "Our goal here as a school is to educate compassionate leaders who are equipped to change the world for the better," said Head of School Virginia Connor. "I hope our students were inspired by the IRC's incredible work and also by Mr. Miliband's example of sharing his talents with people who need them most."
