Your support allows us to deliver an outstanding educational experience including talented teachers, small class sizes, dynamic learning environments and unlimited resources, and so much more. The full cost of our programming and enrichment exceeds the amount we charge in tuition. And, because we are a private school, we do not receive funding from our state or federal government. The Hamden Hall Fund provides unrestricted monies for the daily operations of our school community.
Our fiscal year runs from July 1, 2021 - June 30, 2022.

We have seen Timi grow from that little boy in the playground in Pre-K to a talented young man at Hamden Hall. The school provided him with great mentorship that guided him through exploration of different spheres of life till he was able to find his own niche.
He now marches on to college with a clear focus, drive and assurance for success knowing fully well that a good foundation has been laid.
We remain grateful to Hamden hall for the role it has played in his growth thus far.
Andrew has gained so much from his time at Hamden Hall. He has been challenged academically and encouraged to explore his interests through participation in a wide range of activities, which has led him to develop a love of theater and music. Because Hamden Hall provided him with a nurturing environment in which to learn, he has gained confidence in himself and in his ideas and is well-prepared to take the next step in his education.

When I think back to kindergarten and throughout Lily's years as a ‘Lifer’, I am filled with gratitude and appreciation. Hamden Hall has provided an outstanding educational environment for Lily.
Hamden Hall has been a wonderful experience for Ava and our family. The teachers, staff, administrators, students and their families all work together to create a wonderful learning environment. We've seen Ava mature as a student and as a responsible caring individual...
Hamden Hall cares about the whole student. Hamden Hall is like a family, faculty and students alike. My son, who graduated from this school in 2010, is still very close friends with former classmates. It's my pleasure to support the school with an annual fund donation, and I invite all of you to join me.

Our son Josh (Senior), has had a wonderful experience at Hamden Hall. He has been active in many clubs and teams from Model United Nations, Amnesty International, Varsity Soccer and Chess Club, just to name a few. We are very appreciative of the many amazing teachers that he's had that have helped him acquire a true love of learning. Hamden Hall is a very special place.

We chose to send Shaw to Hamden Hall not just because of the academic opportunities, but because it's a community that cares about its students beyond the classroom. Over the years, Hamden Hall has become an integral part of who Shaw is, and who she will become. Lyn & I donated to the Senior Parent Legacy Fund to ensure that this school, which has given Shaw so much, will be there to offer the same to children like her long into the future

We sent our children to Hamden Hall for the high level of commitment to excellence in the classroom and in the athletic realm. They have made a lot of friends and have really enjoyed all the positive experiences with their teachers and coaches. We are happy to support Hamden Hall in any way we can!

As each school year progresses, I observe more and more examples of how the Hamden Hall Fund (annual fund) benefits our students - from trips, to extracurricular offerings, to financial aid for some of our most excellent students. The culmination of our contributions, no matter how big or small, really does make a difference in the life of the school and our students, beyond what yearly tuition covers. As a result, I am proud to make my contribution each year knowing the impact it will have on our students!

I support Hamden Hall because I believe in the mission of the school. Hamden Hall has been and continues to be a big part of my life. Since my arrival in 1974, I have seen many students go on and achieve so many wonderful things in their lives, thanks to their experiences at Hamden Hall.
It is a privilege to know the faculty, staff, and students of Hamden Hall. I gave to the Hamden Hall Fund because I wanted to participate in supporting the programs and opportunities the school provides. Together, our donations offer a quality Hamden Hall Experience.
I've never considered donating to be a sacrifice. I donate to Hamden Hall because I value the school and see the good that is derived not only from its faculty and staff but from its student body as well...
As a parent, there is no greater feeling than watching your child thrive and grow into the person they were meant to be – to find their passion, their community, and a strong sense of who they are and where they want to go...
