Who We Are

Spring programming has begun
The instructors and staff at Hill House are looking forward to an exciting semester that will encourage your child to cast off the wintertime blues and put that pent-up energy to good use. We hope you can join us as we make cheery springtime creations in the art room, get into the swing of things baseball and sing the praises of the season in music. It's not too late to register: spaces are still available in many of our athletic and enrichment programs.
