Hewitt Faculty

Trained Experts, Research Practitioners, Lifelong Learners

Hewitt faculty members are trained experts committed to implementing research on girls at each stage of development. Our faculty are not just teachers but research practitioners and lifelong learners who make the extraordinary journey of a Hewitt education possible. Hewitt educators are perpetual students themselves, continually seeking out the latest available information about how girls learn best and incorporating fresh knowledge into an academic approach that fosters a truly unique and lifelong sense of purpose in young women.

With only a few specific guidelines about budget and mileage, students were encouraged to make independent decisions about routes, finances, food, and lodging as they planned elaborate trip itineraries.

Impressed with Hewitt students’ design knowledge and excited about their work on cartoon characters, the Sesame Workshop designers invited the girls to tour their art department.
