Welcome to Linden Hall!
Who are we?
We’re the oldest private girls’ boarding school in America. In fact, we pre-date America as a nation, which seems fitting for an international school. We’re nestled in an ideal part of the East Coast close to New York City, Philadelphia, Baltimore, and our nation’s capital of Washington, D.C. — a location uniquely convenient for both day and boarding students.
There’s also plenty to do right outside our front door, as we’re in the heart of the “Coolest Small Town in America.” Lititz, Pennsylvania, offers cozy cafés, world-class candy shops, gourmet restaurants, several parks, an abundance of fascinating history, and so much more. Our students always find fun and exciting new places to explore in town with their friends!
At Linden Hall, we’re curious, passionate, and engaged. Students love to collaborate, grapple with big ideas, innovate to make our world better, and have FUN. They embrace a variety of interests that inspire them to explore the arts, sports, STEM, or riding — some of them at world-class levels!
We’re innovative, friendly, brilliant, and enthusiastically authentic. We’re also a top-choice school that helps our students get into some of the best colleges and universities in the world.
Who are you?
A wise student once said, “The ‘typical’ Linden Hall student is gloriously atypical.” There is no best type of student for Linden Hall. Instead, our girls join a student body that is a diverse blend of boarding students from afar and day students from nearby, artists and entrepreneurs, dreamers and builders, top athletes and inspiring artists, rocket builders and international travelers, and, of course, best friends.
You’re a great fit for Linden Hall if you like to challenge yourself, if you’re curious and open-minded, and if you enjoy engaging in a diverse environment. You’ll thrive here if you want to find your passions, expand your leadership skills, and graduate equipped to excel in college and beyond. We want to help you do those things, and more.
Why all girls?
It’s a question we hear all the time! The data are crystal-clear: girls who attend an all-girls school surpass their peers attending co-ed schools in many areas, including:
Students accomplish so much by building their skills in a safe environment that encourages bold academic choices, self-evaluation, personal growth, cultural competency, and critical and creative thinking.
Role models and social norms matter, especially for girls in middle and high school. Additionally, growing in a place where girls take center stage instead of a back seat opens a world of opportunities for young women. Our graduates are bound for greatness and poised to be leaders in their communities. But don’t just take our word for it — connect with our students and alumnae to hear how Linden Hall changed their lives!
So, what does it all mean?
It means that Linden Hall is a fantastic environment for you to learn and grow. We are a premier school where you can be your true self and become the best version of you possible. Our Admissions team is here to help you explore all that we have to offer. So, let’s get started!
