St. Hilda’s & St. Hugh’s is an independent, Episcopal day school. The school is coeducational and includes toddlers through grade 8. As an Episcopal school, we are committed to nurturing the whole person: body, mind, and spirit. Religious and ethical formation are therefore important components. Our philosophy of education is rooted in the values of the Judeo-Christian humanist tradition. We strive to create an educational community which reflects unity in diversity: a unity of purpose and shared values among a population diverse in race, culture, and religious beliefs. The rich variety of gifts within the school community, provided by the different backgrounds of students, faculty, staff, and parents, prepares students to understand and contribute to a diverse, changing world.

St. Hilda’s & St. Hugh’s opened its doors in 1950, realizing the dream of the Reverend Mother Ruth, founder of the community of the Holy Spirit, an Episcopal order for women. Mother Ruth had a vision of serving God and children here in Morningside Heights.

St. Hilda’s & St. Hugh’s is housed in a modern building built specifically for the well-being and needs of students. Here, within the context of a well-planned, well-ordered environment and with roots in the English tradition, St. Hilda’s & St. Hugh’s provides 365 students with their first building blocks for the education of mind, body, and spirit.
