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, they are committed to nurturing the whole person: body, mind, and spirit. Their philosophy of education is rooted in the values of the Judeo-Christian humanist tradition. They 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.
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.
