Morningside Heights

As proud as we our of our own school and facilities, St. Hilda's & St. Hugh's is also proud to be located in Morningside Heights, a neighborhood that offers our school, students, and families a rich array of resources and a vibrant intellectual and cultural community.

Surrounding our school and contributing to its diversity are several centers of learning, research, and worship. Our neighbors include Columbia University, Barnard and Teacher’s Colleges, St. Luke’s Hospital, Union Theological Seminary, The Jewish Theological Seminary of America, the Manhattan School of Music, The Cathedral of St. John the Divine, International House, Riverside Church, and the Interchurch Center. Many of our parents are associated with these institutions, and these facilities and resources enrich our offerings to children.
