Linden Hall

Private Boarding School – Lititz , Pennsylvania

Established in 1746, Linden Hall is the oldest girls’ boarding school in the United States. The school is located in the historic town of Lititz, Pa and within a few hours of Philadelphia, Washington D.C., and New York City.

As an independent college-preparatory day and boarding school for girls in grades 6-12 and a post graduate year, Linden Hall has been committed to excellence in the education of young women for over 260 years. Linden Hall has recently redesigned its curriculum and increased its academic rigor to provide a challenging and multifaceted learning experience. Here, each student is nurtured and inspired to reach her highest potential. We are a diverse community of life-long learners, set in a structured, family centered environment.

Our community values scholarly achievement, character development, cultural awareness, and physical wellness, as it strives to prepare young women to assume the leadership roles of their generation.

Linden Hall’s student/faculty ratio is 1:6, with an average class size of 12 students. Both Honors level and AP courses are offered in English, History, Math, Science, and Art. Students may also participate in Linden Hall’s Advanced Scholars’ Program (ASP), which is a curriculum designed for talented and motivated Upper School students (grades 9-12) who wish to challenge themselves with advanced study at the honors and college levels while in secondary school. A strong college counseling program ensures that all Linden Hall graduates continue their education at the college level.

Concentrated Studies Program
At Linden Hall, they recognize that each student has her own talents and interests. They seek to nurture those qualities and, to that end, have created a Concentrated Studies Program. Beginning in eleventh grade, students focus their remain- ing elective credit hours in one of four programs: Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM); Humanities and the Arts (HATA); International Studies (IS); and Arts and Sciences—a general distribution of electives (AS). The Concentrated Studies Program allows students to explore their own interests in-depth, while still assuring the breadth that comes with our comprehensive core program.
