The program is coordinated by a parent volunteer and is ongoing.

School Life:

At Seven Hills, there is so much more than classroom academics. From community service to after school enrichment programs or a parent-student book club to the community lecture series, Seven Hills offers an enriching educational experience beyond the classroom. Our faculty, staff, students, and parents take pride in knowing that Seven Hills offers a whole child approach to education. 

We are an inclusive community and stress compassion, social awareness and diversity. The school provides opportunities for leadership and service that culminate in positive contributions to the world beyond our fences.

Athletics:

Seven Hills School has a strong commitment to its after school athletic program for both girls and boys. We have a “no-cut” policy and participation is open to all academically and behaviorally eligible students. It is our intention that the program be both inclusive and competitive. For many sixth graders, the Seven Hills’ sports program is their introduction to a new menu of opportunities.

We love to give our students experiences that help them find hidden talents and encourage them to take valuable risks. The athletic program is designed with that in mind. Our middle school students are encouraged to participate in one of the many programs offered throughout the year.
