“The Hillsboro School is so much more than a facility or curriculum.”


The Hillsboro School is currently accepting applications for all grades through Grade 11, with limited openings in several grade levels. We operate on a rolling admissions basis and encourage families to apply as soon as interested in order to secure a spot. If the grade is full when a student’s application is approved, the student is placed on our waiting list and notified as soon as a position in the class becomes available.

The Admission Process

We invite all families to learn as much as possible about the Hillsboro School before applying. An abundance of information is right here on the Hillsboro website, as well as on the school’s Facebook page. When school is in session, and at select other times, we also invite you to attend a tour of the school either before or immediately after applying. Please call (205) 864-7330 or email admissions@thehillsboroschool.org to schedule a tour.
