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.
At Hewitt, girls and young women learn to measure their self-worth not simply in grades and awards, but in their ability to find and cultivate work that feels meaningful to them and their communities. Our faculty bring the latest research on educating girls into their classrooms to support every Hewitt student in nourishing their passions, honing their skills, speaking their voice, and nurturing their own sense of what is worthwhile.
At Hewitt, there is no mold to squeeze into. No rigid preconceptions about the kind of person a student is supposed to be. Warmly welcomed into our community by peers and guided by expert teachers who serve as wise and caring mentors, every student finds their place and purpose at Hewitt.
