We respect the shared goals of our students and their families. We pride ourselves not only on preparing the girls for a postsecondary education, with a 100% university acceptance rate, but also on helping them to succeed in their life’s path – no matter what it may be.

Our Classical Liberal Arts Education provides cultural literacy, critical reasoning skills, and aid in the growth of virtue, in a smaller school environment that allows teachers and mentors to know every girl, their personal interests and abilities. This fosters a truly individualized education and allows every girl to leave her mark in her own way.

Academic Programs

Hawthorn School Daycare offers children aged 18 months to 4 years old a loving, nurturing, and caring environment where they are able to grow in all areas of development: social, emotional, cognitive, language, and physical.

Students in the Junior Program (Junior Kindergarten & Senior Kindergarten) are exposed to a wide variety of subjects and their natural curiosity is encouraged to help them gain knowledge of the world and the truth of things.

In the Lower School (Grades 1 to 7) students develop a love for learning, and build social skills and work habits in each area of a well-rounded academic program. Small class sizes and subject specific teachers allow for curriculum enhancement at every level.

Hawthorn’s Upper School (Grades 8 to 12) delivers an ambitious liberal arts education, preparing the leaders of tomorrow for university, the workplace, family life and the world beyond.

Hawthorn offers after school supervision for students from Preschool – Grade 7 from 3:45 PM – 6:00 PM daily.
