During their high school years, students begin to follow the pathways that lead to the adults they will become. At Flint Hill’s Upper School, we take our role in this process seriously – preparing students to be active, engaged learners; thoughtful, ethical citizens; and inquisitive, fearless adults. Upper School students are supported and encouraged to be their best selves, to aspire to make the world a better place, and to achieve broadly and boldly through a program that:
- Awards them increasing freedom against a backdrop of structure and support
- Equips them for the academic and life challenges they will face in college and beyond
- Offers excellent guidance over the course of the college selection process
Our programs and facilities encourage students to explore existing interests and investigate new ones in environments ranging from our outstanding Classics program and biology labs to our instrumental ensembles and fully equipped pottery studio. In anticipation of the college admissions process, where a balanced and rigorous approach to academics is essential, students choose electives that resonate with their personal interests and expand their intellectual horizons and participate in activities that provide a positive outlet for their energy. Giving students the opportunity to explore their increasing sense of freedom is made possible by a robust advisory system and the meaningful relationships students develop with teachers, coaches and mentors.
