Formerly known as the annual fund, the Pembroke Hill Fund is critical to enabling our steadfast commitment to delivering a robust and expansive educational program, to supporting healthy mentoring relationships between teachers and students and to fostering thoughtful, passionate individuals who are empowered to cultivate the best in each, for the benefit of all. Your philanthropy goes directly toward advancing the institution by supporting its people and programs through:
Innovation & Technology
Our extensive financial aid program helps our school to be a viable option for outstanding students around the area and helps those students whose families would not otherwise
be able to enroll their children in Pembroke Hill.
The average financial aid award is 55-60% of tuition
25% of our students receive tuition assistance
30 additional merit scholarships are awarded to Pembroke Hill students each year
Collaboration, done through innovation and technology, is key to fostering curiosity and growth in our students. Accomplished through active classrooms that allow students to explore, take risks and develop into scholars responsible for their own success.
Schoology our new Learning Management System, enables us to provide the best continuous learning program no matter the environment for our students from early childhood through upper school.
In order to meet the requirements of our continuous learning program we provide laptops/iPads to our school community so that our extraordinary faculty can effectively teach our students no matter the setting.
Technology electives in engineering, coding, design, robotics and 3D printing challenge students to think differently and solve real world problems.
We want our students to live healthy, balanced lives, in and outside of the classroom. That starts with academic and extracurricular programs that encourage excellence, supports teamwork and teaches time management.
Our partnership with ChallengeSuccess will help us embrace a broad definition of success and implement researched-based strategies to promote students’ well-being and engagement with learning.
PHS has 3 full-time counselors and a mindfulness coach who are dedicated to the health and wellness of each and every student.
