The Hill School

717 E High St, Pottstown, PA 19464

Rev. Matthew Meigs, a Presbyterian minister, founded The Hill as The Family Boarding School. In 1920, ownership of the school was transferred from the Meigs family to Hill alumni. After more than a century of educating only boys, the school became coeducational in the fall of 1998. The varied curriculum consists of required and elective courses in English, mathematics, history, modern and classical languages, science, the arts, humanities and theology. Honors and Advanced Placement courses are available in every discipline, and qualified seniors may pursue independent study under the guidance of a faculty member. The school integrates technology instruction into the curriculum for all students, who are required to purchase laptop computers. Students satisfy a 10-hour community service requirement between the start of grade 9 and the conclusion of grade 10. Some form of athletic participation is required.
