Upper School (9-12)

Hewitt girls are engaged learners, compassionate leaders, and life-long friends.

The academic program is fully grounded in the liberal arts, providing in-depth learning experiences that cultivate fully each girl’s capacity to meet the intellectual demands of today’s rapidly changing world. Advanced and elective courses are offered in every subject so that the girls can both pursue individual interests and explore new avenues of thought. Hewitt is a laptop school, with every girl equipped with a wireless Dell laptop that is an important tool and resource in every discipline.

In addition to being scholars, girls are artists, athletes, actors, journalists, and activists. Understanding that a rich and challenging program extends beyond the classroom, the upper school offers abundant co-curricular opportunities in the arts, athletics, drama, clubs, and community service.  At Hewitt, girls develop an understanding of self and other, the capacity for empathy, and a sense of agency.

Critical components of each girl’s upper school experience include:

  • developing a deep awareness of and pride in her intellectual and creative strengths, her passion and commitments, and her unique identity;
  • being known, appreciated, and respected by her teachers and her peers;
  • preparing to take her place, locally and globally, acting with purpose, and making a difference;
  • becoming her best self!
