Hebron Academy changed my life as a middle and upper school student. I entered the Academy a shy and reserved young kid and left in 12th grade as class president and an outgoing natural leader. In college, my professors would always comment on my fantastic writing ability (Mr. Gillies and Dr. Fidler) and the strength of my lecture participation. In fact, college was almost easy from the start because I had already been held to standards that were far beyond a traditional high school level. My life has been shaped by this place and I am so thankful to have had the chance to be part of the Hebron community for the most important years of my life.

Hebron Academy is an incredible school. As soon as we stepped out of the car, we all had this feeling that the Hebron community was right for our family. My daughter instantly felt like she belonged. Hebron faculty taught her to be an excellent writer and public speaker. More importantly, she now has the confidence to realize it! Without the caring and supportive teachers at Hebron Academy, my daughter would not be who she is today--a strong, independent, young lady.

The best hidden boarding school secret in New England. Hebron Academy is truly a remarkable academic experience for all ages. It is a place of high academic standards, great opportunities in athletics and the arts, and an incredible place for children of any age to experience the BEST Middle School to Secondary School education. If you want your child to grow through a close knit family oriented support system in school then Hebron is just such a place. The faculty are true scholars who really care that its students succeed at their fullest potential. Through Hebron, my child has discovered and consequently chosen to work towards levels of success that i know he would not have found anywhere else. We have been blessed by this opportunity and know that his time at Hebron will be the most rewarding educational experience he could have.

Be very careful just because they have good fin aid doesn't make it good school, just one that needs to buy admissions. Academics is very average at best, note 60% of teachers don't have masters degree or teacher certification so wouldn't be qualified to teach in public school .This true even with Headmaster(only bachelor degree) so clearly lack emphasis on teacher academics that carry through with kids .There is bullying,and racism on campus mostly by East Coast Preppy kids .They bring in high number International kids to balance in budget .College advising was very lacking we had to beg them to even send transcripts to colleges. Would highly suggest parents look elsewhere as freshman or postgrad .

Hebron is in a small community. Hebron is an independent school and has a great academics program. The faculty and staff are very dedicated and are committed to helping each student achieve their highest potential. Hebron has a quiet setting and the campus is beautiful.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
