At its core, our culture at Seven Hills celebrates human complexity. We love that we’re all different. In our diverse, inclusive community, we learn to approach each other with open minds and compassionate hearts. We learn that each of us has unique potential and that the variations of that potential make each person’s story worth exploring.
A welcome from our Head of School, Christopher P. Garten
Christopher P. Garten
Each day I have the privilege of walking the halls of our school, dropping in on classrooms where our students are fully engaged. Students are excited to learn, teachers are excited to teach, and the energy is palpable.
Through all the laughs and the smiles, in the excitement and curiosity, you see our students’ personal stories unfolding right before your eyes. Our Lower School students are becoming more self-confident by engaging in spirited classroom discussions. Our Middle School students are becoming more aware of the world around them and more eager to play a role in our school and their communities. Our Upper School students are preparing for wherever their story takes them next, passionate about emerging interests and prepared to write their next chapter. All of our students are discovering their own potential, their unique and unabridged stories.
| In the end, we want our students to know who they are and who they want to become. We believe that the best way to do this is, first, to understand them as individuals so that we can help guide them down their distinct paths in life. Each student has unique gifts and dreams. That’s why our expert teachers design a wide array of learning experiences to promote active inquiry and self-discovery.
The Seven Hills experience isn’t just an education; it’s a journey of self-discovery. And it’s our privilege to guide our students toward lives of purpose and fulfillment.
Our love for and dedication to our students remain the same, no matter where in their story they may be. That’s what sets us apart. At its heart, Seven Hills is a family. And we’d love for you to become a part of it.
The Seven Hills School
By the Numbers
The Seven Hills School is comprised of two campuses — the Hillsdale Campus and the Doherty Campus.
At Seven Hills, we are guided, each day, by our mission, our values, our commitment to a diverse community, and our ambitious vision for the future. Together, they shape who we are today and who we’ll be tomorrow.
We celebrate diversity at both our Hillsdale and Doherty Campus and pride ourselves in having a community where all students feel valued and embraced. By providing ongoing opportunities to explore various themes such as multiculturalism and inclusion, we use our campus as an example of global connectedness that encourages conversation and openness.
In order to fulfill our ambitious mission, our dedicated leadership team and Board of Trustees work to ensure that everything we do at Seven Hills is setting our students up to thrive in college and succeed in life.
Above all else, our faculty and staff make Seven Hills what it is. Guided by their expertise and passion, our students grow in self-awareness, discover new interests, and become the people they are meant to be. Get to know our teachers’ stories and learn what makes them so excited to be here at Seven Hills.
