Head of School Welcome

"That is the true value of Linden Hall - we tell our students that they can be anything they choose, and we believe that women should have a seat at the table where decisions are made. Our students are empowered to excel and are poised to be leaders in a global society." - Dr. Nan Wodarz, Head of School

Welcome to Linden Hall School for Girls!

Dr. Nan Wodarz, first female head of school at Linden Hall

When you step into Linden Hall, you will find a highly diverse and inclusive community of caring and curious individuals. From the positive energy in our classrooms to the wonders of inquisitive discovery sought through critical thinking and agency, you will find that our students are inspired to challenge themselves within a rich academic, artistic, and athletic program rooted in over 275 years of history.

Whether engaging in a classroom discussion about the mathematical underpinnings of tessellations or dissecting sea urchins, students at Linden Hall are immersed in a dynamic learning environment that challenges them to excel.  Our talented students engage with inspirational, master teachers who guide them to discover their passions and expand their world. Working at an unprecedented depth of curriculum, our students are able to leverage their intellectual talent and creativity to move beyond being mere consumers of information to being contributors and creators of original content. 

Beyond the formal curriculum, our faculty explicitly teach interpersonal skills, support individual health and wellness, encourage age-appropriate risk taking and allow students to find their own, unique voices. Leadership opportunities abound, as does the ability of our students to engage with the greater community. 

There is no better place to learn and grow than in the small town of Lititz, Pennsylvania. This unique little town embodies all that is good in small town America. The school is situated on 49 acres of land right on Main Street. The town is safe for our students to explore in groups and allows them to visit book stores, candy stores, and trinket shops. Plus, there are eateries where they are able to socialize and enjoy a meal or snack. 

Linden Hall graduates are confident, thoughtful citizens who are prepared for college and beyond. They are well poised for a future where they will be world leaders. 

I encourage you to visit us and begin to build a strong academic foundation, find your passion, and engage with the global community that is Linden Hall. 

Warm regards,

Dr. Nan Wodarz

Head of School
