Some of the most popular colleges this year were the University of St. Thomas, the University of Minnesota, Saint John’s University, College of Saint Benedict, Minnesota State Mankato, and the University of Wisconsin Madison. 71 students will attend college in state, while 85 will attend out of state.

Hill-Murray students, parents, staff, and alumni are invited to join St. Paul’s Monastery for a prayer walk (pilgrimage) through the Priory Preserve just across Larpenteur. This 1.5 mile walk has the feel of stations of the cross: there are 12 ecological interest points and pilgrims will stop at each to pray, read from scripture, the Rule of St. Benedict, and Pope Francis’ letter on the environment (Laudato Si’). The pilgrimage ends at Hill-Murray’s outdoor classroom for reflection on the experience.

We will begin with 8:00 AM morning prayer with the Sisters and then the prayer walk through the Priory Preserve. At 11:30 AM, all are invited to join the Sisters for their Founding Day Mass celebrating 76 years as a Monastery and a cookout on the beautiful grounds of the Monastery.

Tuition Opt-Out Process

Hill-Murray Families,

We understand that family plans may change for the upcoming school year. To avoid fees and assist us in planning for the next academic year, kindly review our Opt-Out Process:

If the Business Office receives an email notification for an opt-out prior to June 30th, students will be released from the tuition agreement without incurring any penalties.

Any withdrawal after June 30th until the commencement of the school year will incur a charge of 25% of the tuition agreement.

For withdrawals after the start of the school year, a full semester of tuition will be required, depending on the timing of the student’s departure. For instance, if your student begins the first semester and leaves during that same semester, they will be charged tuition for the entire first semester (equivalent to half of the annual tuition).

The above Opt-Out Process applies regardless of whether the withdrawal is due to expulsion, dismissal, transfer, or any other reason. In any case of withdrawal, the registration fee is non-refundable and will not be prorated.

We appreciate your cooperation and support in ensuring a smooth enrollment process for all families. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact the Business Office at cerickson@hill-murray.org. We look forward to another successful academic year together.

Be a Part of the 2024 Hill-Murray Dance Team!

Special Message from Sister Linda

This school year I had the privilege of being the Mothers Club, Fathers Club, and Hill-Murray Parents praying Sister via Commissioning in September at the monastery. Thank you for your prayer requests and for being YOU, but know this is not an end. You are welcome at any time to request prayers to be posted on the prayer board for the Sisters at the Monastery.
