Dear Parents and Friends,

St. Hilda’s & St. Hugh’s is a place where boys and girls learn first-hand from one another to acknowledge and love the full diversity of the human condition. Our core belief, that every child is sacred, is reflected in our program as well as in the admission process.

We strive to admit, nurture, and graduate students from a multitude of backgrounds who will become, with our help, compassionate and confident adults. We welcome families who feel that developing children’s sense of empathy and conscience is as important as their academic success, and we work in partnership with parents to educate graduates who will use their talents and the benefits of their education to create a more just and productive world.

St. Hilda's & St. Hugh's students are kind and curious and have a vivacity for life and learning. In classrooms, at play, and throughout each day, we practice The Golden Rule: “Treat others as you wish to be treated.” This fundamental principle defines our school culture, along with an appreciation for hard work and joyful play.

Welcome, to St. Hilda’s & St. Hugh’s!
