"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.
The Hewitt School is proud to be a founding member of the International Coalition of Girls' Schools (ICGS). ICGS is the leading advocate for girls’ schools, connecting and collaborating globally with individuals, schools, and mission-aligned entities dedicated to educating and empowering girls.
The Hewitt School is a proud member of the Independent Schools Admissions Association of Greater New York (ISAAGNY). Founded in 1965, ISAAGNY aims to ensure orderly, professional, and equitable admissions processes at member schools: we do so by observing a shared admissions timeline, engaging in professional development to hone our collective craft, exchanging resources and best practices, and more. The resulting spirit of cooperation serves schools, families, and nearly 30,000 students across greater New York.
