For over 100 years, Hillside School has enabled pre-adolescent and adolescent boys to develop academic and social skills, while building confidence and maturity. Hillside accommodates both traditional learners who benefit from more of a personalized education, and non-traditional learners with learning differences and/or attention problems. The academic program is supplemented with small group tutorials offered in Language Arts, Math, Organization, and Social Skills for those students needing extra support. Hillside's strong arts and athletic programs offer boys opportunities to succeed and grow outside of the classroom. New curricular innovations and improvements to its 200-acre campus and working farm are advancing Hillside's reputation as a leading junior boarding school for boys.
