A Linden Hall girl is well rounded and dedicated to her community.

The strongest applicants are not only academically motivated, but they also demonstrate an interest in extracurricular activities, commitment to service, and hold a sense of responsibility to the world around them. As an all girls' college preparatory school, Linden Hall has a selective admission process; however, academic achievement is not the only factor we consider when evaluating a candidate's application.

Policies

Non-Discrimination Policy

Linden Hall admits qualified students of any race, color, national or ethnic origin, ancestry, religion, handicap or disability, and any person who uses a guide or support animal because of blindness, deafness or physical handicap of the user, to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the School. The School does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin, ancestry, religion, sexual orientation, handicap or disability, or on the basis of using a guide or support animal because of blindness, deafness or physical handicap of the user, genetic information, or any other status protected by applicable law in the administration of its educational, admissions, financial aid, athletic and other policies and programs.

Anti-Hazing Policy

Hazing involving students, student groups or any individuals at Linden Hall School for Girls (the "School") is strictly prohibited.

Definition

Hazing is defined by the State of Pennsylvania (Act 175) as "any action or situation which recklessly or intentionally endangers the mental or physical health or safety of a person or which willfully destroys or removes public or private property for the purpose of initiation or admission into or affiliation with, or as a condition for continued membership in, any organization. The term shall include, but not be limited to, any brutality of a physical nature, such as whipping, beating, branding, forced calisthenics, exposure to the elements, forced consumption of any food, liquor, drug or other substance, or any other forced physical activity which could adversely affect the physical health and safety of the individual, and shall include any activity which would subject the individual to extreme mental stress, such as sleep deprivation, forced exclusion from social contact, forced conduct which could result in extreme embarrassment, or any other forced activity which could adversely affect the mental health or dignity of the individual, or any willful destruction or removal of public or private property. For purposes of this definition, any activity as described in this definition upon which the initiation or admission into or affiliation with or continued membership in an organization is directly or indirectly conditioned shall be presumed to be 'forced' activity, the willingness of an individual to participate in such activity notwithstanding."

Responsibility for Compliance

All School students, faculty, staff and recognized organizations are responsible for abiding by this policy, both on campus and off campus, including on privately owned facilities and/or property. Recognized organizations are responsible for any activity in violation of this policy by any individual or group affiliated with the organization (new member, member, auxiliary, or alumnus), unless it is proven that the group or individual activity was independent of, and occurred without the knowledge or consent of, the recognized organization. Such responsibility will apply equally to situations in which one or more members knew or should have known of the activity and failed to make every reasonable attempt to prevent or stop it.

Reporting of a Possible Violation

Anyone who witnesses or suspects that hazing has occurred shall immediately report what was witnessed, or the basis for the suspicion that hazing has taken place, to the Head of School or Principal. If the hazing has occurred in connection with a School club, organization or sport, then the incident shall also be reported to the person or coach responsible for the club, organization or sport.

Violations and Sanctions

The Head of School shall have discretion to impose any discipline deemed appropriate for an incident of hazing against both the individual who engaged in the conduct and the School organization of which they were a member. Discipline and penalties shall include, but not be limited to, withholding diplomas or transcripts, the imposition of fines, restitution, probation, suspension, dismissal or expulsion. In the case of School organizations, penalties may include withdrawal of permission for the club or organization to continue to operate on campus or other school property or to otherwise operate under the recognition or sanction of the School. Imposition of discipline by the School does not preclude any criminal penalty which may be imposed for violation of criminal laws and the School will fully cooperate, and share information, with law enforcement as part of any investigation.
