The Lower School encourages children to develop to their fullest potential while fostering respect for individual differences and a joy of learning within a child centered community.

The mission of the Middle School is to foster, through implicit and explicit teaching, a respect for others and self, pride in work, and the joy of being.

The mission of the Upper School is academic excellence within an atmosphere that actively supports the emotional, moral, spiritual, physical, and social development of our students.

  • Explorations Before the Trip

    by Rob Taylor
    The overnight trip to Jamestown and Williamsburg, in May, has become a highlight for fourth grade students in their last year of the Lower School. We begin preparing for the trip months earlier. In December, we learn about the Powhatan tribe, who lived along the James River long before the settlers arrived in 1607. We also read about descendants of the tribe who live in Virginia today, including a young boy who shares many of the same interests as our Flint Hill students.

Headmaster’s Notes

  • Engagement

    Last week, we had a group of marketing folks visit Flint Hill, and one of the questions asked to me was, “What words describe what we are looking for in a student at Flint Hill?” A lot of words immediately flashed to mind, but the one that truly gets me is engagement. I think for students to really be successful, for families to be happy, and for the school to thrive and grow as we all want, engagement in the life of the school is critical. The active participation of people makes all the difference in the world. It is important for the students to find some way that matches their personalities to engage. If they do, then they feel like it is their school. The same can hold true for us as parents.
