St Hilda’s College is renowned in our country for its centennial expertise in bilingual education. In 1912 Canon Joseph Thomas Stevenson, at the time Headmaster of St George’s College Quilmes, made his second attempt at founding a girls’ boarding school and invited Miss Mabel Holland to be its Headmistress.
For around fifteen years that school was called Cricklewood in memory of Miss Holland’s native town in England. In the late 1920’s, thanks to Bishop Edward Francis Every’s financial support and encouragement, Miss Holland moved the school to its present location and gave it a new name, St Hilda’s College. Both our patron, St Hilda, who was renowned in her day for her wisdom and prudence, and our school motto, Laborare est orare, body forth our work ethos.
We aim to forge bonds which foster a learning environment where our students can develop their intellectual, physical and emotional potential. To work, our motto claims, is to get in touch with a dimension greater than each one of us. In other words, to work is to transcend. It is to put our talents at the service of those beside us, of their well-being, of the common good.
Excellent bilingual school, one of the best in Argentina. Highly recommended for all ages from kindergarten through high school. High academic standards, physical education, public speaking and debate, art, music, drama, everything young people need to discover and develop their talents in a peaceful, green environment.
School out of the ordinary. Super solid both academically and in the values they promote. Really of excellence and with absolute certainty of the path they travel. The green space and the artistic area are a luxury.
