About City on a Hill
The newest school in a network of three college prep high schools, City on a Hill New Bedford opened in August of 2014 with a 9th grade and will grow to a full (grades 9-12) high school by 2017. Founded on the belief that all students can achieve, CoaH sets high standards for all students and empowers teachers in the decision-making process to implement those standards. City on a Hill is tuition-free and open to all students. There is no entrance exam; students are admitted by a random lottery with new students admitted in the ninth grade only. Small by design, the school allows for a maximum enrollment of 280 students in grades 9-12. Regardless of their prior educational attainment, 100% of City on a Hill’s graduates are prepared to succeed in college.
