Connect with Thinking

Today’s academic landscape is changing rapidly, morphing from the age of information into a new world of ideas and innovations. Our students discover the greatest ideas of humankind through the study of the classics. You travel the world through the events that shaped civilizations. Your mind is sharpened by the elegant beauty of mathematics. You observe the phenomena of the world with the rigor required of the sciences, in search for the truth of the world.

Our academic culture is inquisitive, engaged, supportive, and well balanced by the many other activities offered at High Mowing. Yet our academic courses are demanding: they require a heartfelt interest and involvement in learning and a willingness to question, discuss, and ponder. If you hold a genuine willingness to be joyfully engaged and challenged, you’ll find that engagement at High Mowing School.

AP Courses

We are preparing to offer math, science, and English AP courses in the upcoming academic school year. Historically, many students self-study for the AP exams and take the exams at our local public school. Students who seek more rigor in their academic work opt for an Honors Level Distinction in all of our classes, which is noted accordingly on their transcript.

Transfer Credits

Upon enrolling at HMS, we ensure that transfer credits are properly noted on the student's HMS transcript. It is possible that the student may need to take some required courses prior to graduation: these courses are frequently offered as electives throughout the year. Occasionally an online course might be necessary. Additional courses mostly pertain to international applicants who are missing US History credit or the state-mandated Health credits.
