Thank you for your interest in Hillside School. Since 1901, we have prided ourselves on providing a life-changing educational experience for our young boys as they begin to navigate their pre-adolescent and adolescent years. We believe that all students need to feel safe and supported in a structured and predictable environment before we can expect them to stretch academically, athletically or socially. This has always been our cornerstone, our baseline, from where we have challenged our students to take full advantage of everything Hillside School has to offer and to better prepare themselves for a seamless transition into secondary school.
On that note, we invite you to speak with secondary school representatives — from Philips Academy Andover and St. Paul's School to Concord Academy and Pomfret School — to discover how well we prepare our boys to become confident and independent learners who know how to advocate for themselves. We also invite you to explore our website and to come see us in person. Our admission staff stands ready to meet with you and to help guide you through this process. I look forward to seeing you this year.
