Founded in 1746, Linden Hall is the oldest school for girls in the United States. Linden Hall is located in one of the oldest cities in the United States - Lititz (8,000 inhabitants), Pennsylvania, between the cities of Harrisburg and Philadelphia. Along the main street of Main Street, buildings stretch back in the early 18th century.
Today, the main task of the school is to comprehensively prepare gifted and purposeful girls and girls for later life and for entering higher educational institutions of the country. The educational program is built taking into account the latest methods of teaching subjects and is rightfully considered one of the highest quality in the country. Currently, students from several states of America and from sixteen countries of the world are studying at the school.
Lititz is one of the ten most outstanding settlements of the National Historical Protection Trust due to the unique combination of provincial charm with the capabilities of a large city. It also houses the Wilbur Chocolate Factory and the Sturgis Pretzel House bakery, where pretzels for sale were first baked in America.
The school is located in a picturesque, calm and liveable area of south-central Pennsylvania. In walking distance from our school - cafes, galleries, parks and shops. The proximity to cities such as New York, Philadelphia, Washington and Baltimore provide international students with additional opportunities to get to know the history and culture of the United States.

Advanced Placement (AP)
University Preparation Program. Pupils study majors in the university program, which they are preparing to enter, and pass exams based on the results of the study. The AP program consists of subject area courses. Students select several subjects from the proposed areas for in-depth study.
The study of academic subjects is possible due to the high level of training of teachers of the school, the vast majority of which have workshops (MA) or doctoral (Ph.D.) degrees in their specialty. The school offers students to study a choice of up to eighteen subjects of general university education (AR) and two subjects in their specialty (post-AP).
High marks in the single final exam, as well as in various national tests, reflect the high level of education at Linden Hall:
According to the traditions of the school, each high school student has an individual curator and can take an annual class to prepare for the national final exams (SAT), as well as the English proficiency test (TOEFL). This approach provides a very high average student achievement rate. In turn, the school successes of students of Linden Hall allow them to continue their education at the country's leading universities.
All foreign students and non-resident American schoolgirls live in a boarding house at the school in a comfortable and safe environment. Living together helps foreign schoolgirls improve their English, find friends and get to know more about the life traditions of American students and their families. The family atmosphere in the hostel is partly due to the fact that many teachers of the school live in or near the hostel.
Horse riding, athletics, tennis, volleyball, basketball, football, field hockey, swimming, softball, lacrosse, etc.

IMPRESSIONS OF A SCHOOL VISIT
Summarizing the distinctive advantages of Linden Hall school, I would like to indicate: excellent American education, strict private school discipline, equestrianism, strong music and theatre departments, lack of boys ...
The small town of Lititz, three hours from Manhattan, will open its doors to those wishing to study in a private American boarding school for separate education.
The school itself is a closely located building with conical roofs buried in verdure. In my opinion, it is impossible to imagine a more ideal place to educate young ladies who own the playing of musical instruments, participate in theatrical performances and take an active part in social and political life.
There are polar points of view on diverse education, but all the disadvantages of girls' schools were debunked instantly when we turned out to be spectators at an impromptu concert in the 18th century chapel with beautiful stained-glass windows and noble-coloured oak benches: young Linden Hall pupils performed real works of art with rare love to their work and confidence in the eyes. The school is well equipped and has all the conditions for girls to develop creativity and a love of art: acting, singing, classes on 16 different musical instruments, fine art, choreography, design, photography ...
In addition to the creative component, the Linden Hall school, you can say, is directly designed to eradicate the dislike of many Russian girls for sports. Here everything that only a girl’s soul wishes: volleyball, basketball, football, cricket, equestrianism, yoga, fitness, tennis, swimming, dancing.
I can console the parents who are afraid that being in an American school would adversely affect the quality of their mother tongue by the fact that the school offers the program “Russian language and Russian culture”, which is popular not only among Russian pupils, of whom only today in school 2, but also among representatives of other nationalities.
It is a recognized fact that only leaving the comfort zone encourages the person to self-development. Studying separately, girls do not have support from the male sex, but can only rely on themselves, however, they do not feel pressure from them and are not "distracted" by competition between the sexes. When I visited Linden Hall school, I personally became convinced that there is a rational approach to the approach of diverse education, and the comfortable and friendly atmosphere in which girls are brought up, combined with highly qualified teachers, turn students into educated, versatile, well-educated and self-confident young ladies. By the way, Margaret Thatcher graduated from school for girls ...
