History of the School

Established by The Hill School (Pottstown, Pennsylvania) in 1910, Wolfeboro is exclusively a summer boarding school providing a highly structured, supportive environment for girls and boys entering grade 6 through grade 12 in an exceptional lake-side setting. With a staff of approximately 100 adults serving a student population of 200, our priorities include the development of effective study and organizational skills, academic accountability, confidence and the establishment of habits that are conducive to academic success. Our entire academic and non-academic program is designed to support the attainment of individual goals. Courses are offered in all core subject areas for the purpose of review, preview or credit.
