HomeLife at Miss Hall’s

A Global Community

Miss Hall’s is home-away-from home for students from 10 states and 24 countries

At Miss Hall’s, students live and learn with friends from all over the world — and work alongside one another to contribute boldly and creatively to the common good.

This year’s students come from Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Brazil, Cameroon, Canada, China, Croatia, Germany, Guatemala, Indonesia, Japan, Jordan, Mali, Mexico, Moldova, Serbia, Singapore, Somaliland, South Korea, Spain, Thailand, the United States, and Vietnam.

Greetings from Around the World

From the moment students arrive on campus, they become part of a brilliantly diverse community: 38% of Miss Hall’s students identify as white; 32% as Asian; 13% as Black; and 9% as Hispanic or Latino/a/x. Inclusion is a strength of our school and is embodied in all aspects of student life.

One of the first things you’ll notice are the flags lining the walls of Centennial Hall signifying the places of origin of students, faculty, staff, and recent alums. This shared space where we come together for all-school meetings, concerts, and presentations represents our global community.
