Choosing Hewitt

Empowered to Compose Their Own Narratives


Hewitt girls and young women are impressive beyond words and achieve truly great things—from national academic awards to acceptance at some of the world’s most prestigious colleges and universities. Our curriculum, rigorous and challenging, is guided by the belief that the harder an accomplishment is, the greater the feeling of reward for having accomplished it. Hewitt girls make original and sound contributions to society because they have been empowered to compose narratives for themselves.


Hewitt's K-12 academic program and philosophy are thoughtfully designed based on the latest research.

What is it like to be a Hewitt student?

At Hewitt, you learn to measure your self-worth not simply in grades and awards, but in your ability to find and cultivate your life’s purpose. You learn to nourish your passions, hone your skills, speak your voice, and nurture your own sense of what is worthwhile. 

At Hewitt, you find no mold to squeeze into. No rigid preconceptions about the kind of girl you are supposed to be. Warmly welcomed into our community by girls whom you count as steadfast sisters, and guided by expert teachers who serve as wise and caring mentors, you find your place and your purpose at Hewitt. 

Over time, Hewitt helps you discover that all you need in the world already exists — and it is right there inside of you.
