Thank you for your interest in St. Hilda's & St. Hugh's! The typical admission process runs from September through March. The role of the admission team is to be a resource for applicant parents. Please contact us at any point during the process with questions ([email protected]). We are here to help!

Applicants who are siblings of current St. Hilda's & St. Hugh's students may choose the option of Early Notification, which allows us to let those families know about admission decisions in December. This option is also available to children of current faculty members and associated clergy.  

  • Not only does this option facilitate the admission process, but it is also a demonstration of our commitment to our current families.
  • This option will not diminish our dedication to a community diverse in race, culture, socio-economic status, and religious beliefs. 
  • Early Notification decisions can be an acceptance, a denial, or a deferral to the regular pool, based on space availability and the application.
