About Linden Hall

270 Years of Excellence in educating girls

With a diverse student body representing 45 countries and 13 states, Linden Hall nurtures curious and creative thinkers, fosters leadership, and empowers girls to excel.

Educating young women is in our DNA. In the United States, the education and empowerment of young women began and continues with Linden Hall.

The Moravian tradition of educating young women was based on the principles of "The Father of Modern Education," John Amos Comenius. His revolutionary ideas included education for rich and poor, boys AND girls.

Comenius believed that education is an instrument to train individuals to seek the truth and recognize it when found. Today, we continue to apply these principles to provide an unparalleled educational experience for young women.
