Beyond the Classroom


Understanding that a rich and challenging program extends beyond the classroom, Hewitt offers abundant opportunities for students to develop their own sense of purpose and passion. Supported by their teachers and classmates, Hewitt girls act with confidence and empathy as they step outside of their comfort zones and embrace new opportunities to learn and grow.

Giving Girls a Place in the Engineering World

Hewitt Robotics Team 11442N created an inspiring video to shed light on the lack of women in STEM fields and to highlight how, through robotics, "students are able to get engineering experience...creating a space for a love of technology to grow." 

Meaningful Making in the Hewitt Innovation Lab

The Hewitt Innovation Lab is designed to be a space for students and teachers to explore meaningful ways of making — to make with a purpose. Research shows that many girls and women want to learn how to use technology skills to accomplish meaningful goals, such as pursuing artistic expression, solving a problem, or thinking differently about academic concepts.

The Impact of Student-Led Service Learning 

To inspire all students to act in ways that are personally significant and beneficial to those around them, members of Hewitt's Student Service Board spent the fall educating and engaging our lower and middle school students in school-wide service work.

Congratulations to the cast and crew of our fall production of The Wolves! These talented young women brought intensity, passion, and commitment to their performances of Sarah DeLappe's Pulitzer-nominated play. 

Creating a Nonprofit with Girls With Impact 

Girls With Impact gave me the opportunity to learn real business skills that are typically taught at the college level or learned the hard way, in real life. I came to the program with a vision for a nonprofit that I had been thinking about for a while, and Girls With Impact helped me bring it to life.
