Welcome to Hilltop! This is a small, family-style dormitory for Honors students who have demonstrated that they can embody the Affirmations of POWER (think positively, serve others, seek wisdom, pursue excellence, and live responsibly). They have earned the privilege of more autonomy but continue to meet the high standards of academic and personal excellence that we strive for at Phelps. We aim to be a supportive and close- knit community, and I welcome our residents warmly to the Hilltop family.
The Phelps School Student Parent Handbook is an essential resource for information on school policies and procedures. Please take the time to review the handbook, but feel free to contact us with any questions of concerns that remain unanswered or unclear.
Please also review the Parents’ Guide to Residential Life found on the Housing homepage for details about when and how to contact your son, ideal visiting hours, addressing mail, and leaving campus.
Finally, remember that theft can occur anywhere, and even though we are a small community, boys should be responsible with all of their belongings. Each boy must bear the sole responsibility for the safekeeping and care of all personal items kept on campus. Each student is also responsible for damage to his room or other school property. We thank you for your assistance in these matters and for the privilege of working with your son.
