Dear Hamden Hall Community:
While every school year is a special one, 2022-2023 is especially noteworthy because it marks our 110th year as a school community.
The Hamden Hall founders – including the patriarch of the Bingham family, Hiram Bingham III, who has been called the real-life Indiana Jones! – opened classroom doors to the nation’s fourth country day school in September 1912. At that time, 17 boys and a handful of instructors sought to emphasize “good scholarly habits in the school room and sportsmanlike conduct on the playing field.”
More than a century later, the goals and ambitions of that first class of students have been surpassed in a multitude of means, manners, and methodologies. In other words, The Path Forward, our theme for the 2022-2023 school year, has led us to today’s standards of excellence and heightened standing among the academic community.
We hope you’ll “travel” with us this school year and ensure our current and long-term success through gifts to the Hamden Hall Fund. Your contributions of any size are a critical investment in today’s learners: from our academic standards, to our equitable and inclusive community, and indeed to all facets of campus life.
The path forward drives new learning experiences and launches tomorrow’s leaders, critical thinkers, creative minds, and more. And your gifts help us get there.
On behalf of the Office of Advancement, Communications, and Alumni Relations, thank you for your support of our school community.
