What I want to tell you about Hebron is best experienced in person. By the time you have finished reading this, I hope that you and your family will seriously consider a visit, whether for the first time or for a return trip "home."
Psychologist Carl Jung said, "One looks back with appreciation to the brilliant teachers, but with gratitude to those who touched our human feelings. The curriculum is so much necessary raw material, but warmth is the vital element for the growing plant and for the soul of the child."
Jung's words speak to our character, to our faculty and coaches' genuine interest in seeing our students grow. Hebron Academy's passionate, gifted teachers provide an academically challenging environment, but they are also enormously supportive and accessible. On the fields, in the dorms, in the library, on stage, in the dining hall - everywhere you find the interactions between students and faculty that we value so highly.
Personally, one of my favorite events at Hebron is our all-school musical. Everyone on campus is invited to participate. Each year, alongside a number of extremely talented, dedicated singers and thespians, there are young people courageously stepping on to the stage for the first time. Faculty members participate, as do students from every grade level. The audience cheers enthusiastically for each performer.
Hebron Academy is known for its friendly, supportive environment that encourages young people to reach their potential. Here, teachers encourage students to reach for something more than they thought possible, students are comfortable trying new things and seeking help and guidance from their teachers, everyone is encouraged to be actively involved in the school community, and each person can and does make a difference.
My wife Marcia and I invite you to visit Hebron Academy and experience our community for yourself. We look forward to seeing you.
Sincerely, John J. King

Summary: The Community Life Team along with residential faculty is committed to planning activities for students throughout the year, including special events, sports tournaments, activities in the dorm, and a full slate of choices for the weekends. These activities are in addition to the wide array of existing student plays and concerts, student organization activities and interscholastic competitions.
The Academy also surprises students with a Mountain Day each year, sweeping kids off campus to enjoy a day of hiking, skiing, snowboarding and snowshoeing at a local resort. Hebron's pristine 1,500 acres lends itself to limitless outdoor exploration.
Clubs and Organizations
Summary: Arts: To be truly well educated, one must not only appreciate the arts, but have rich opportunities to actively participate in creative work. The arts bring subjects to life, turning abstractions into actual expression. Learning through the arts often results in greater academic achievement and higher test scores. The arts faculty bring a high level of experience to the classroom, and throughout the year visiting artists and musicians come to campus, exposing students to a wide range of creativity and talent. At Hebron, art is for all and celebrated by all. A highlight of Academy life is the all-school musical, which happens each winter and enlists more than 50 students, faculty and staff. The production personifies Hebron's core mission of being a community that welcomes and supports individuality, respects differences, and values each person's contribution.
Athletics: At Hebron the pursuit of academic excellence finds its corollary in the pursuit of athletic excellence, and participation in organized sports forms an integral part of every student’s Hebron experience. The school’s athletic programs are devoted to encouraging a lifelong love of physical activity and an appreciation for teamwork and fair play. For those who prefer not to compete, recreational athletic opportunities are limitless, thanks in large part to the 1,500 acre campus that affords all members of the community an array of outdoor diversions, whether it's skiing, snowshoeing, or just a stroll on the trail. When weather doesn't permit, the recently opened Athletic Center hosts 54,000 square feet of indoor track, basketball and tennis courts, a state-of-the-art workout room, dance studios, and 30-foot rock wall. The structure was erected using environmentally conscious building practices and boasts beautiful and "green" architectural details.

Summary: Being proficient in English can be an advantage in many ways. It is the language of international business, science, and diplomacy.
Uniquely human, language brings people together. It is best learned in a natural environment of human interaction. No vocabulary list or test preparation can substitute for the desire of one person wanting to share ideas with another. At Hebron’s ELSI, we offer experiences in and out of the classroom to foster English language acquisition.
Hebron Academy’s English Language Summer Institute extends the school’s mission statement of “Hebron Academy inspires and guides students to reach their highest potential in mind, body, and spirit” beyond the school year for non-native English speakers.
Hebron's ELSI provides a fun and educational way to experience American culture.
In addition to classroom and fieldwork instruction, participants will have time to enjoy the many recreational and entertainment opportunities nearby including: an amusement park,a professional baseball game,IMAX theater movie night,
a day at the beach,
shopping,wildlife parks and more.
