The Dining Hall Renovation Campaign

The Dining Hall is a pivotal gathering space on The Hill School’s campus and is emblematic of The Family Boarding School ideal. For well over a century, Hill students have used this space to connect during seated meals, build rapport with teachers and advisers, bond with teammates, and gather with classmates and friends after a long day. Although not a formal classroom setting, the Dining Hall is a key space for learning enduring life lessons.

In keeping with our ambitious campus master plan, the Dining Hall recently was restored and expanded to meet the growing needs of our vibrant Hill community. We invite you to support this $15.1 million project, which will ensure our students and faculty comfortably enjoy both traditional seated and buffet meals prepared in the best and freshest way possible in an inspiring space. The Millhiser Family Dining Room reopened in March 2019, and maintains the beautiful, original aesthetics (including our treasured N.C. Wyeth paintings) loved by generations of Hill families.

We Saved You a Seat

As the Dining Hall renovation nears its conclusion, the School now is in the public phase of the fundraising effort. We invite all Hill alumni, parents, and friends to make a gift at any level to share in the success of this historic project.
