Miss Hall’s has been built, sustained, and guided by our alumnae. We’re glad you’re back.
Alumnae are vital not only to the history of Miss Hall’s, but also to our future. Our worldwide network of alumnae guides current students on their independent study projects, helps fellow graduates find new careers, contributes to the Annual Fund, and learns together throughout their lives.
They also tend to be leaders in their own communities, helping to improve their corner of the world for others.
Alumnae Weekends 2020 and 2021 will be celebrated on May 14-16, 2021. This coming together of Miss Hall's graduates in classes ending in 0, 1, 5, and 6 will be all about connection, resilience, and emerging stronger. Serious planning is underway.
Be in touch!
Let your fellow alumnae know what’s been going on in your life by submitting the form below. We’ll share with your classmates and the Miss Hall’s community in the next issue of the magazine.
“After almost 30 years I only just started giving back to MHS. I don't know why it took me so long. MHS has always been with me and my time there were the best years of my education. Being back last year was one of the best experiences I've had. I was welcomed back with open arms and I am happy to say I am now in regular contact with many of my classmates. Thirteen of us have a group chat and are in touch often. It is a gift.”
Miss Hall's alumnae create change in the world! These are but a few of the inspiring women making a lasting difference in their life's work.
A virtual classroom during the summer of 2020 gave alumnae the chance to stay connected — and learn from their peers. From studying race and gender in photojournalism to a screening of the documentary “Maiden,” about an all-female sailing crew, there was plenty to learn and laugh about.
The Miss Hall’s Graduate
Five years ago, the Miss Hall’s community identified the core competencies that we want to see in all of our graduates. The statement below comes from our formal strategic design document.
The Miss Hall’s School graduate is a thinker, a creator, and a contributor to the common good. She is a global citizen, a self-aware, resilient, and courageous participant in a multicultural society. Empowered by skills and knowledge, the Miss Hall’s School graduate is able to solve problems with intellect and creativity while embracing a spirit of exploration and curiosity. Through her words and actions, and aligned with her core values, she is prepared to navigate varied contexts with the fluency, generosity of spirit, and wisdom to lead a purposeful life.
Guided by the mission and core values of Miss Hall’s School, our graduates will demonstrate the following core competencies:
- Vision is the willingness to dream, imagine possibilities, conceive bold and ambitious goals, and set a course to achieve them. Young women with vision nurture curiosity, innovate, recognize opportunities, and act as allies for others.
- Voice is the power to articulate ideas with authenticity and confidence. Young women with voice present themselves with integrity, communicate effectively, confidently advocate and negotiate, and demonstrate and command respect.
- Interpersonal Efficacy is the intersection of empathy, self-awareness, and cultural competency. Young women with interpersonal efficacy navigate diverse contexts with ease while maintaining consistency of character and building strong relationships and networks.
- Gumption is the strength of mind and character to seek out challenges and grow from failure. Young women with gumption take calculated risks to create change, practice self-reflection, and distinguish the pursuit of one’s best self from the pressure for perfection.
