Founded in 1851 as The Family Boarding School, The Hill School prepares young men and women from across the country and around the world for college, careers, and life by inspiring our students to become mindful, empowered, and engaged citizens of the world.

A purposefully small and close learning community, The Hill is a place where academic excellence is achieved through an expansive liberal arts curriculum, innovative teaching, a dedicated faculty, and a structured atmosphere that blends high expectations with balanced support.

Our location in the Borough of Pottstown, Pennsylvania allows students to engage in meaningful community service and authentic learning experiences right here in our town. The Hill also is convenient to major Pennsylvania cities (one hour from Philadelphia and approximately 30 minutes from the Lehigh Valley and Reading). New York City and Baltimore, Maryland are approximately two hours away by car or bus.
