Our Admission Office is open! We are actively working with prospective families and admitting students on a rolling basis. Click to learn more about what makes Seven Hills the middle school for boys.
We developed a comprehensive plan that allowed our students to return to campus in September for full-time, in-person instruction. All families have the option to engage in synchronous distance learning, if they prefer. With a new cohort system and numerous safety measures in place, we are confident in our ability to navigate the school year in a way that prioritizes the health and wellbeing of our community.
Boys learn differently, so we teach differently. Middle school is a pivotal time for a child and it is often when many boys "check out" of school. Frankly, traditional middle schools aren't designed for boys to succeed. That's not the case at Seven Hills.
Most boys learn best by doing. The days at Seven Hills are filled with interdisciplinary, hands-on learning. We've integrated signature programs like Exploratories, Team Teaching, and River Days to further enhance the indoor and outdoor classroom experience.
Once a month, the entire school moves off campus to the James River. Students undertake labs, engage in activities related to specific academic subjects, and work under the supervision of employees of James River Park on service projects that benefit the river and its environs.
After opening our doors in 2001, we have established numerous time-honored traditions. These programs and events bond past, present, and future Seven Hills students, faculty, and family members. Which House will you be sorted into?
