About St. Hilda’s & St. Hugh’s School

Preschool, Elementary, Middle School

St. Hilda’s & St. Hugh’s School is an independent, Episcopal day school. The school is coeducational and includes Beginners (age 2) through grade 8. As an Episcopal school, we are committed to nurturing the whole person: body, mind, and spirit. Religious and ethical formation are therefore important components. We strive to create an educational community that reflects unity in diversity: a unity of purpose and shared values among a population diverse in race, culture, and religious beliefs. The rich variety of gifts within the school community, provided by the different backgrounds of students, faculty, staff, and parents, prepares students to understand and contribute to a diverse, changing world.

Our philosophy of education is rooted in the values of the Judeo-Christian humanist tradition. We believe that all creation is sacred; each member of the school community is respected as a unique individual. We recognize the different ways in which students learn and acknowledge their developmental differences. Our teachers provide flexibility within the classroom structure so that students can both achieve their potential and meet our academic expectations.

Our belief in the sacredness of creation is also taught through a traditional liberal arts curriculum, which encourages in students a respect for nature and human achievement, as well as a love of art, music, drama, and athletics. Religious knowledge classes and corporate worship create an environment in which the developing child may find satisfying ways of defining his or her spiritual identity and creative gifts. Formal Chapel services are conducted in accordance with the Book of Common Prayer. Students learn to define themselves as unique sources of creativity and to value their contributions to the well-being of the group. The delight students discover in sharing their own gifts within the school community prepares them for serving in the world.
