Why Hilton

Hilton College changes lives. Here’s how…

In a world that’s often jaded and confusing, we inspire boys to inspire others.

We do that through our Plan for Every Hilton Boy. Your son’s plan won’t be prescribed by others; rather, with wise counsel and the inspiration of others living authentically, through immersion in experiences (not all comfortable) unlike anything he’s known before, he’ll discover who he really is. To write a story all of his own: a story that’s never existed before.

The thing about living inspired is that it’s contagious to everyone around him.

He’ll understand his humanity by being part of a mix.

We’re an inclusive school – not only in our racially transformation and socio-economic and international diversity – but also in the way we intentionally embrace boys from a wide and interesting range of abilities, strengths and aspirations.

We strive for excellence, but excellence looks different for everyone.

We strive for excellence, but excellence looks different for everyone. We develop a growth mindset by supporting each boy holistically through his personal team of academic and house staff, sports coaches and mentors – all coaching him to achieve his personal best. Excellence means we’ve instilled a lifelong love of learning, rather than training him to hollowly jump through hoops. Excellence for a D student may mean achieving a C. Excellence for a boy who’s afraid of water might be his discovery of the courage to play water polo. Excellence might look like being a compassionate friend.

Quite simply, we do this because watching a boy captain his own ship is so very worth it.
