Where Students Learn With Joy and Live With Purpose
Child-focused education that nurtures the whole child for their whole childhood.
Hillfield Strathallan College students learn through hands-on experiences, self-discovery, and building lasting relationships. Our unique approach to personalized education helps students develop the skills and confidence to make a difference in the world.

As the only co-ed, toddler-to-twelve, independent school in the Hamilton area, our community provides stability and continuity for students from 18 months to 18 years old, fostering a positive worldview and sense of belonging.

Unlike private schools, HSC operates as an independent, not-for-profit institution and is well regarded as one of the best schools in Hamilton.
