Our mission is to empower children who have learning differences with the skills needed to become confident, independent learners.

The Hill School of Wilmington offers a unique half-day academic program for students in grades 1-8 with learning disabilities and/or attention deficit disorder. Our teachers are trained in the evidence-based Hill Center methodology and our program replicates the proven success of The Hill Center (www.hillcenter.org) located in Durham, NC. Our goal is to provide instruction in grades K-12 in the future.

Our School

  • Our school is modeled after one of the Southeast's oldest and largest schools for students with learning disabilities and/or attention deficit disorder.
  • As an affiliate of the Hill Center in Durham, we provide an intensive remediation program, enabling students to achieve at a level corresponding to their intellectual ability. Our program is modeled after a proven track record of success for students with learning differences. Over 95% of the Hill Center's students go on to college in comparison to the 40% national average.
  • Students attend the half-day school from 8:00-11:00 or 12:00-3:00 and spend the rest of their day at their base school.
  • A 4:1 student/faculty ratio allows close student-teacher interaction.
  • Research-based, multisensory structured language methodology is used to focus on reading, written language, and math. Our program is based on the Orton-Gillingham approach.
  • Teachers are certified through The Hill Center by the International Multisensory Structured Language Education Council (IMSLEC).
  • Member of the: Learning Disabilities Association of America (LDA); Council for Exceptional Children (CEC); and International Dyslexia Association (IDA).
