"In each division the curriculum is presented at a level appropriate to the age of the students, and the sequence of courses is structured so that the learner is increasingly responsible for her own learning, for managing responsibilities, and for making choices.
Hathaway Brown School strives to create an atmosphere of caring: care for individual differences, care for personal and moral development, and care for precision and high standards. The ultimate goal of the faculty is to teach their students not what to think, but how to learn. Instructors, therefore, teach broad basic skills so that students may learn to think interpretively and critically.
The school values its diverse student body reflective of the pluralism of our American culture. In addition to providing the strongest possible academic training, Hathaway Brown remains dedicated to helping young women achieve the abilities and personal qualities that will prepare them for a rewarding and productive life: confidence, independence of thought and actions, curiosity and vision, social conscience, and the acceptance of challenge.
I look forward to the coming year as one of great personal growth and
intellectual excitement for your child."
