The Hill School: Boarding School Profile, Background & Important Details

The Hill School

Pottstown, Pennsylvania, USA

Co-Ed, No Religious Affiliation

Founded in 1851, The Hill School is a coeducational independent boarding and day high school for young men and women from around the world. Hailing from 32 states and 29 countries, Hill students live and learn in a close-knit community with peers who are diverse, talented, and driven to excel.

When families visit campus, they often ask, “What makes The Hill School different from other schools?” Simply put, we are The Family Boarding School. To us that means enjoying meals together in our Dining Room, having fun and sharing laughs with friends in the dormitories, and gathering as a community for Chapel services twice per week. These traditions – fused with rigorous academics, international diversity, and real-world learning opportunities – create a transformative high school experience for every student.

However, when you’re aiming for a Top U.S. Boarding School or even many other International Boarding Schools that accept the scores for their admissions, you don’t know exactly out of the 60 Verbal Questions or the 50 Quantitative (Math) Questions or the 40 Reading Questions you need to get correct.
