What We Do

Hillsdale’s Principal Jeff Gilbert quoted in The Washington Post’s article ” The Secret Sauce: the Right Way to Teach the Teachers” by Rachel Lotan, professor of education at the Stanford Graduate School of Education and director of the Stanford Teacher Education Program known as STEP.

The Hillsdale High School Foundation serves as the school’s primary fundraising entity. Its mission is to serve each and every student by providing financial support for Hillsdale High School’s Small Learning Communities and other academic programs that uphold the school’s cornerstones of equity, personalization, rigor and shared decision making.


More information


HHSF has two main annual fundraising campaigns — the Family Partnership Program (FPP) and the HHS Alumni Association Fund — plus a variety of other ways to show support. See more ways to donate


In addition to the Small Learning Communities, the Hillsdale High School Foundation supports advisory staffing, technology upgrades, staff professional development and collaboration, and annual grants to support our drama, dance, music and athletic booster groups  and PTSO. Learn more


The role of HHSF is to raise funds. It does not make decisions regarding expenditures — those decisions are made by the school’s SLC Council which meets each summer to establish needs and priorities. The primary goal is always the sustenance of SLCs—smaller classes, staffing, and advisory. Other goals further the school’s values: equity, personalization and rigor.
