A Day of Your Choosing


Visitors benefit by seeing the H-M community on a "typical" day of their choosing. Prospective students are invited to spend a day at Hill-Murray on days that Hill-Murray is in session on a regular schedule. Please contact us with a date that would work well for your student.


Visit Day Details


The visit day begins at 7:30 am and ends at 2:15 pm. Prospective students will follow their host's schedue, enjoy a complimentary lunch in our awesome cafeteria, and meet teachers and other students throughout the day.


Your child may request his/her host or you may provide us with your child's interests (favorite courses, hobbies, activities, sports, etc.), and we will select a student host who shares common interests in academics and activities.


At H-M, we work hard to ensure that your student's day fits his/her needs and interests. Therefore, we request 48 hour advance notice to schedule a visit so that we can prepare the best possible experience for your student.


To schedule a visit, please contact Shawn Illgen at 651-748-2420.
