Head of School Welcome
Welcome to Rolling Hills Prep School! We seek to inspire students on a journey of intellectual bravery. We bring a liberal arts philosophy of learning to our community anchored in equity and inclusion. Our community is based on replacing pressure with personal and academic empowerment. We change mindsets from “I can’t learn that” to “I haven’t learned that yet.” Our educational environment is small by design. It promotes intellectual bravery and allows us to connect with each student on a deeper level. We are intently focused on identifying the unique potential in every student and supporting them in realizing the full range of their talents. We take pride in embracing elements of individualized learning that empower and support a broad range of students from first to twelfth grade.
Our “small by design” environment allows us to instill self-advocacy in our students and foster an environment where it is safe to work outside of one’s comfort zone. Our REACH and Renaissance Programs specialize in educating neurodiverse students and setting them up for success in the classroom and outside of the school environment. We offer programs and curriculum geared toward helping these students grow as diverse learners and community members. In addition, we are a college preparatory school focusing on the “right fit” colleges for all our graduates. With the guidance of our senior advisors and college counselors, students receive support starting in ninth grade through the college application process and beyond.
For 42 years since the school was founded in 1981, we have upheld the Four Pillars of Disciplined Minds, Sound Character, Healthy Bodies, and Creative Spirits. Embedded into every aspect of our school, we aspire for each student that steps onto our campus to live out these learning expectations. If our vision interests and inspires you, I encourage you and your family to visit our school and experience the liveliness that makes up Rolling Hills Prep School. Whether you are a current member of our community or a prospective family looking for a new school, I look forward to getting to know you and building ties within our schools and local communities.
