All children embark on their own educational journeys brimming with potential, informed by nature, and nurtured through personal experience. We believe each journey is better and more nourishing if, during these formative years, it takes place within a deeply-connected and diverse community. Such a community provides children a supportive, physically- and emotionally-safe environment where they become confident learners who take risks and actively engage in their world. Green Hedges is this community.
In 1942, Frances and Kenton Kilmer, children of international artists, founded Green Hedges School to provide a learning environment that emphasizes excellence in the core subjects while reflecting their passion for the arts and languages and their appreciation for cultural and religious diversity. Building on their vision, we teach a robust liberal arts program from the earliest ages–providing context, encouraging connections, and inspiring creativity. Our approach creates a strong foundation and allows students to achieve a deeper and broader understanding within all disciplines.
