You will be known. When we ask people outside our school what they think of when they hear, "Hill-Murray,'' the most common answer is "rigorous academics.'' The academic bar is, indeed, high. And, we make no apologies. Our students are serious about their studies, about preparing for success in college and about defining their place in the world beyond school. The culture at Hill-Murray is structured and disciplined. Our students, with a variety of learning needs, thrive on that structure and discipline. As a Hill-Murray student you will be part of that high-achieving academic community that is known throughout the Twin Cities and beyond. You will also be known within that community. Fellow students, teachers, coaches and our chaplain will know your name. They'll get to know what classes you have and what your hobbies are. And, if you're having a bad day, chances are, someone's going to notice. Don't be surprised if someone lays a hand on your shoulder, asks for a high-five or shoots you a "you okay?'' as you're walking down the hall. At Hill-Murray, we care about each other. We're here for one another. You won't be alone. You will receive the support you need. You will be known.
You will be respected. Our arts and athletics are respected throughout the Twin Cities. We have received awards for our theatre, band and sports programs. In addition, the range of activities we offer is wide and varied. We provide an encouraging and nurturing environment where students feel comfortable trying new things. Taking on new challenges deserves respect. And, that's what you'll get here, no matter what you choose. Try out for a play or take up the trumpet. Join the tennis team or try lending an ear as a Peer Listener. There is a special place for you here at Hill-Murray, where you'll be encouraged and inspired to be all you can be. For your achievements, for your effort, for just taking a chance - you'll be respected.
You will be loved. You won't just grow academically. At Hill-Murray, students of all beliefs are invited to grow in faith. Everything we do is connected to our deep Catholic roots. We practice and celebrate all the wonders of the original Church. We work daily to adopt the Benedictine way of life. The many ways in which we serve our community -- the poor, sick, hungry and homeless -- allows us to serve God and show our love for Him. At Hill-Murray, you will be loved.
