The Hill School, Montgomery County:
The Hill School is a co-educational boarding and day school consisting of grades 9-12 and a post-graduate year. We are located in Pottstown in Montgomery County PA, 40 miles north-west of Philadelphia. Founded in 1851, as The Family Boarding School, The Hill School provides students from across the U.S. and around the world with an outstanding liberal arts education designed to prepare them well for excellence in college, careers, and life.
Co-ed Boarding & Day School Programs for Grades 9-12:
- A challenging curriculum (including post-grad year) for boarding and day students, emphasizing critical thinking and writing.
- We offer 23 Advanced Placement courses, as well as an array of honors classes and independent studies.
- Hill students are active in athletics, the arts, student-run organizations, and community service.
- College advisers are assigned during the winter term of the fifth form (junior) year.
Because of small classes and close contact, we are able create hard-working, safe and fair communities of learning at each level of English at The Hill School. The core of all learning involves writing, reading, listening and speaking.
The two-year sequence of humanities courses exposes students to various literary genres such as poetry, drama, and short story beside representative examples of painting, architecture, music, and film which foster thinking on key themes.
The classics department is, strictly speaking, a "language" department offering elementary and advanced courses in Latin and Greek for the successful fulfillment of The Hill School language requirement.
- Modern Languages:
The Modern Language Department offers Chinese, French, and Spanish, from beginning to AP levels, and beyond. All courses, regardless of the language, emphasize the four “pillars” of language (reading, writing, listening, and speaking) and use both intensive classroom instruction and innovative technology to enhance student learning. The Department offers integrated and sequential program offerings that allow for instructor autonomy that enhances student learning.
- Math: The Hill School mathematics department’s primary focus is to challenge its students to learn mathematics as deeply and thoroughly as possible. Through courses carefully designed at the regular and honors level, all Hill School students have the opportunity to take four full years or more of stimulating and demanding mathematics classes.
The history program at The Hill is designed to introduce students to both the stories of the past and the practice of history as an intellectual discipline.
The science curriculum builds students' skills as scientific thinkers and analytic problem-solvers, exciting them about the field and preparing them for the rigors of college-level study. Just as important as classroom instruction are weekly double lab periods, limited to no more than 16 students, which allow time for applying concepts hands-on and learning to work cooperatively in small groups.
The Hill's courses in Religious Studies consider both humanity's perceived relationships with the transcendent and the many elements of our cultures shaped by those perceptions—elements which the Western world has typically grouped together under the category "religion".
The mission of the arts department at The Hill School is to instill in each student a sense of the joy of creation and the will to strive for excellence in his/her life; build a sense of community through co-operative learning, collaborative activities, and shared experiences; provide Hill students with exposure to, appreciation for, understanding of, and opportunities for practical application in the visual and performing arts; and prepare Hill students for further study and / or participation in the visual and performing arts beyond the secondary educational level.
Athletics at The Hill School:
With 29 varsity sports programs and our fitness-centered intramural program, athletics play a vital role in every Hill student’s development. The Hill School's extensive athletic program will promote and perpetuate the school's educational ideals. Athletics at Hill is a core educational experience because of the growth and maturity that results from mastering the primary opportunities of athletics.
Hill boarding students learn by living with students from across the United States and around the world. Whether through the weekly dorm meetings, lively “dorm feeds” or "Open Houses," the residential curriculum program, or daily interaction with peers and adults, boarding students make lifelong friends in a unique way and learn important life skills in the process. Best of all, some of the most memorable, positive, and fun experiences happen within the dormitories.
Our residential community provides a true second home for those who live on campus. More than 30 Hill faculty members live in the dorms as “dorm parents,” and a majority of those who do not serve as affiliates to a dormitory. These faculty members support students as they learn to be independent young adults.
