Heart of the Hill

Greenhill is a community that feels like a family. Heart of the Hill, a campus program that brings students from different divisions together, ensures that we maintain this family feeling throughout the busy school year.
Heart of the Hill was started in 1997 and engages small groups of students as well as faculty and staff in projects that provide service to the School and outside communities along with teach, celebrate, and perpetuate the School's rich history. Groups, known as Legacy Groups or Heart of the Hill Groups, meet 6-8 times per year. Members of each group stay the same from year to year, forming deep relationships and strengthening the Greenhill Community. Each year on September 11, our Founders’ Day, the school honors an important employee, alum or board member by naming a group after him or her.
