Welcome to Hebron Academy's English Department! In Walden, Henry Thoreau writes, "If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them." In our English studies we strive to set foundations of reading, writing, and thinking for a future of scholarship. Through versatile approaches to subject matter, Hebron teachers encourage students to take active command of their own learning.  We recognize that students learn through independent and collaborative work.

English Department Philosophy

We believe students have interesting, insightful, and creative ideas about their world, so our English courses offer students a space for refining how they articulate and communicate those ideas to diverse audiences.

In Hebron’s English classrooms, students lead lively discussions as they critically analyze poetry, fiction, and essays, and they share their ideas not only in writing but also in formal presentations and multimedia projects.
