About SHS

A high-quality education is one of the most important things that we can provide a child. Exposure to a variety of topics, people, and adventures all contribute to a fulfilling school experience.

At St. Hilary of Poitiers School we focus on educating the whole child. We encourage our students to discover and develop their talents. Our Christian faith permeates every aspect of who we are and what we do. Our students are encouraged to develop leadership abilities and interpersonal skills, understand personal responsibility, practice sportsmanship, and to provide service to the community. Recognizing that both home and school are an integral part to our faith-centered community, parents and teachers partner to guide each student to recognize and discover Christ in all people and understand the importance of preparing students to be deeply rooted in their faith and their education and become peace-filled citizens of the world.

Peace Program

In September, 1994, SHS instituted a Peace Program. This Peace Program became the philosophy of our school. It is based on the principles taught by Jesus Christ. It infiltrated every curriculum area and is our Discipline Code. This non-violent approach touches every person in our school community. It touches our principal, teachers, staff members, parents, and students. All are required to follow these principles of peace.
