Rowland Hall’s Mission
We inspire students to lead ethical and productive lives through a college-preparatory program that promotes the pursuit of academic and personal excellence.
Rowland Hall students learn how to think, not what to think. They develop the tools to ask questions, think critically, take risks, and solve problems creatively.
Nothing gives me more joy than hearing from alumni that Rowland Hall gave them the knowledge and resilience to succeed in life long after their classroom days had ended.—Head of School Alan Sparrow
Learn for Life
Students are led on a joyful educational journey that culminates with intellectual, social, and emotional empowerment—giving them the understanding, perspective, and confidence to thrive in a dynamic world.
Our culture promotes kindness and inclusion. Unified by our understanding of and appreciation for each other, we see diversity as a strength and an opportunity to expand our perspectives and enhance our community.
Live with Purpose
We inspire students to find and use their own unique voices—literally and figuratively. Whether through public speaking, artistic expression, or service learning, our students engage with their community and build self-awareness. They don’t just develop as intellectuals, they flourish as people.
Teachers cultivate meaningful, trusting relationships with students, because relationships are an essential ingredient for learning. We know what makes each student tick and we challenge and support them in ways unique to their learning, personality, and motivations.
Like all independent schools, Rowland Hall engages in a thoughtful conversation about its mission, vision, and direction on a five-year cycle. Toward the end of each of these strategic planning processes, stakeholders representing each school constituency—teachers, alumni, administrators, trustees, parents, students—unite around goals for teaching, learning, and funding that will best serve our students.
