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.

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.

Fostering Emotional Intelligence with the RULER Approach 

At Hewitt, we believe deeply in the power of emotional intelligence as the foundation of a relational education. Research shows us that emotional intelligence benefits our students not only in academic settings, but also in the personal and professional relationships they will develop throughout their lives.

Developing Global Perspectives on Learning and Culture

Since 2017, our students have traveled throughout Costa Rica, Canada, Spain, England, and France, where a special school partnership has recently developed between Hewitt and école de la Légion d’Honneur, a girls’ boarding school in Saint-Denis. Through an ongoing exchange program, students from both schools have opportunities to share their classrooms, homes, cities, and perspectives with one another.
