"It is the touch of life upon life that matters most in a school." 

These words of our founder, Caroline D. Hewitt, are a befitting introduction to The Hewitt School. Present at our school’s founding, Hewitt’s commitment to deep humanity and mutual respect remains undiminished today.

At Hewitt, we believe that the key to a meaningful life is to connect authentically to self and others, and to a sense of purpose. As such, the Hewitt experience is full of human interaction, with teaching and learning that are highly experiential, interactive, and personalized to the individual girl.

As you consider applying to Hewitt, we invite you to explore our website, to meet us virtually or in person at an event, or to contact us at any time. We are here to help navigate the admissions process with you, and look forward to getting to know your family.
