Educational Excellence Since 1912
Hamden Hall Country Day School
Educating students in PreSchool through Grade 12
Dear Hamden Hall Community:

As a member of our extended Hamden Hall family, it doesn’t matter when you were last under the pines or in a classroom. Whether you’re a current family, a past grandparent, a former faculty member, or an alum from several decades ago; there’s always been a unifying element to any connection within our community, and that’s the student experience.

We call it The Hamden Hall Experience, and we’re quite proud of all it represents: rigorous academics, a premier faculty and support staff, a culture of participation and opportunity through programming, extracurriculars, and activities; and a unique identity that fosters school spirit and community building.  

Moreover, The Hamden Hall Experience is analogous with daily campus life and the individual programming and undertakings in which our students take part. For today’s Hornets, that can mean being part of our nationally recognized music program, or being a member of one of our Robotics or Athletics Teams, or being a participant in a class field trip to a nearby museum. All of these experiences – and so many more – are intrinsically woven in a Hamden Hall education.

This year, we’re hoping our Hamden Hall Community will help us Provide the Experience through gifts to our Hamden Hall Fund. Your largesse – no matter the size – enables us to continue delivering outstanding learning opportunities and practices. Indeed, through your donations, we are able to think outside of the box and grow our program to new distinction and prominence. There are no boundaries and the possibilities are endless! 

We strive for 100 percent participation from all of our community members – past and present. The fact is, our grantors and financial partners look favorably upon us when we show collective support via our various giving circles.

So please consider helping us Provide the Experience. Be a part of something that’s bigger than any one of us individually, but is so conducive to our mission to educate our future global citizens, leaders, and stewards. It’s an exciting opportunity, and one we hope you will graciously embrace in whatever means possible.

On behalf of the Office of Advancement, Communications, and Alumni Relations, thank you for your support of our school community. 
Best Regards,
