Campbell Hall is a coed private day school with 1,100 students enrolled in grades K-12.

Founded in 1944 as a parish elementary school, it moved to its current location a year later and became an independent Episcopal school, adding high school students in the ‘60s. Campbell Hall is both progressive and traditional, with a dynamic, research-based educational program that includes the use of an innovative block schedule. The school offers a wide range of competitive athletics; performing groups in theater, music and dance; a student newspaper, yearbook and other publications; speech and debate, mock trial and model United Nations; and a wide variety of student clubs. Applications for 2013-2014 begin in September.
