Welcome to St. Hilda’s & St. Hugh’s

St. Hilda’s & St. Hugh’s is a school for children. We welcome boys and girls as young as 2 for our early childhood and elementary programs.


St. Hilda's & St. Hugh's 2018 Convocation opened more than a new school year. On the first day of school, a renovation of the school's Gordon Chapel was unveiled. The last space in the school to be updated, Gordon Chapel’s transformation completed the modernization of the 51-year-old building.

The class of 2018 was welcomed into the alumni family by a 2007 graduate, Coral Peña. Peña, an actor who appeared this year in Steven Spielberg’s The Post with Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks, spoke at a dinner for St. Hilda’s & St. Hugh’s eighth graders and their parents. While she talked about her Hollywood mentors, Peña reserved her highest praise for her St. Hilda’s & St. Hugh’s classmates and teachers—many of whom are still on the faculty.

Brass Band Director Sandy Coffin recently enlisted her students to kick off a social media campaign aimed at preserving and promoting free instrumental music tuition for all school children in Scotland. “Musical and cultural exchanges have always been important in promoting better understanding,” Coffin says. 

The C.V. Starr Library and Learning Center is one of St. Hilda's & St. Hugh's treasures, offering students, families, and faculty rich resources and ample space for reading, research, and exploration. In honor of National Library Month, this month we will showcase the library’s many resources: this week, two online encyclopedias, World Book (WorldBookOnline.com) and Scholastic Go! (go.scholastic.com).
