We are continuing to develop new topics for our webinar series to share more of the Flint Hill experience with you. In the mean time, please check out our complete archive below.
Understanding the Why: Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in Schools
At Flint Hill, diversity, equity, and inclusion are not buzzwords. These terms define who we are, how we teach and why we connect. Our commitment to institutional equity makes our vision to take meaningful risks, be themselves and make a difference possible for every student. In this webinar, we examine the student competencies and outcomes of DEI and how it drives our innovative teaching and learning.
What Flint Hill Teachers Know about How Your Student Learns
In the last 20 years, there is more research available to educators about how the brain works and about the variables that impact student motivation. In this webinar, you will learn more about effective practices for deep learning, critical thinking, problem-solving and helping students to take ownership of their learning.
A Deeper Understanding of Math in Higher Grades
Through applications and real models, Middle and Upper School students at Flint Hill get a deeper understanding of math concepts that can lead to powerful student outcomes. This webinar explores the math curriculum for the Middle and Upper Schools and the different paths students can take to explore this topic in those divisions.
Preparing for College Admission: What Matters
Planning is an important component of any successful college search and application process. This webinar will provide an overview of the steps families should take — and when — to prepare for an effective and meaningful college admission process. Topics covered will include academic planning and course selection, the factors which affect an admission decision and steps to take each year of high school in order for a student to be positioned well to apply to college.
Understanding Anxiety in Kids and Teens
Hosted by Elisa Nebolsine, this webinar provides an overview of what anxiety looks like in kids, how to identify when it’s a problem and simple strategies you can begin using today to help your child manage their worries.

A Student-Driven Approach to Math from Pre-K to 12th Grade
Why we need math is a great question to ask. At Flint Hill, math instruction is student-driven. Rather than using memorization drills and lectures, students learn to understand and apply math concepts in ways that align with the ways they learn best. In this webinar, we’ll show you what that looks like from pre-k to 12th grade.
Affordability in Private Schools
For many parents, private school education is an investment of resources that they prioritize because of the enormous gains. Private schools have a proven track record of offering students support from nurturing communities, extraordinary classroom instruction and producing graduates who are well-rounded and successful. In this webinar, you will learn more about making a private school education possible for your child.
