Academics

Linden Hall has great academics, it offers rigorous course loads. 

Classes are appropriately challenging - a non-honors class at Linden Hall is close to an honors class at many other schools. Because classes are small and the students and teachers are dedicated, students can move efficiently through material and really learn everything in depth. 

 

Dorm Life

Students always have somewhere they could go to if they don’t want to stay in their rooms - they could go to town or to common rooms, and also have trips planned on the weekend. On snow days, the faculty would find suitable activities for the boarders so that they would have something fun to do.

 

Activities & Extracurricular Opportunities

There are many activities, international students should get involved in, so they can learn more from the school experience and have the opportunity to build up friendship.

It is very easy to join any club that a student may be interested in, and also to start clubs that she would like to have. The clubs are there for students to act on their interests, and fulfill that job nicely.

One of the best parts of the school is the community, where students interact with each other and how teachers interact with students in a friendly way.

 

Facilities

Library, dining hall, outdoor track, gymnasium, performing arts center etc.

 

Athletics

The athletic program is not too strong, this is only to be expected from a small school as they don’t recruit athletes. However, it actually works to the advantage of students interested in doing a sport, as there is less competition and it is easier to make the team.

 

Town Life in Lititz

There are a fair number of food shops around. It's a nice and safe small town, and Linden Hall and the surrounding community have a pretty good relationship.

 

Benefits of an All-Girls' School

An all-girls' education lays the groundwork to help her succeed in life. Girls that attend single-sex schools have greater educational opportunities and spend more time on schoolwork than students at co-educational schools. Young women who attend all-girls' boarding schools report feeling more valued, having a higher satisfaction level, and receiving more attention than their co-educational school peers.

 

Students Life

At Linden Hall, students experience a globally-focused environment with rich geographical and cultural variety. Everything Linden Hall has to offer – from the visual arts to the literary and performing arts, as well as numerous social and travel events – makes students’ lives more culturally enriched.

 

 

Note

 

Founded in 1746, Linden Hall is an independent, college-preparatory, day and residential school for grades 6-12 girls. The school is the oldest all-girls’ boarding school in the United States.
