Columbia's age three through grade 12 independent school where students learn to expect more.
  • Respect for the dignity of every human, and respect for the unique mind of every learner.
  • When a child knows that her teachers and classmates respect her mind, her talents, and her way of seeing the world, she comes to expect more of herself.
  • He sets his goals high, sets to working hard, and surpasses even his own high expectations.
  • At Heathwood, your child fits in precisely because he can stand out. And he learns to expect more – of his school and of himself – precisely because we respect his fullest potential.

Welcome to the Heathwood Hall Sandbox!

Welcome to the Heathwood Hall Sandbox!

This sandbox is completely devoid of all design-elements - we promise the new site will not be styled in the austere white and grey you see here! Headers and other typographical elements, for example, will be styled according to the final website design (once confirmed). The pages we have built are at this point free of any content — no pictures, copy or design elements. For now, you’ll have to take a leap of faith in imagining that the site you see at the prototype phase and the site you will ultimately see are the same site, even though they look nothing like one another at this point!
