Early childhood and elementary education provide an essential opportunity to build a strong and lasting foundation. Our attention, our efforts, and our resources are focused solely on the needs of children and their early education.” Virginia Connor, Head of School
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.
Our students graduate from eighth grade academically prepared, physically confident, and morally centered people of conscience and character. Our graduates are poised to use their inherent gifts and the benefits of their education to create a more just, equitable, and productive world.
As an elementary school, our focus on the preschool through middle school years allows us to celebrate and protect the unique joys of this foundational time in a child's life. Our excellent faculty engage our students’ innate curiosity, nurture each child's unique abilities, and challenge all to fulfill their potential, thus providing a sound and lasting intellectual, physical, and spiritual formation.
Continuing the visionary mission of our founder, we pride ourselves on cultivating a diverse school community that is strong in knowledge, in spirit, and in love of self and others.
