Candidate Member Schools
Salvatori Prize Winner Schools
Hillsdale College Member Schools receive curriculum, consultation, and training from the Hillsdale K-12 Education Office. The Hillsdale K-12 Education Office advises Member Schools across the country, all of which were started in consultation with Hillsdale College. Those desiring to receive Member School assistance for a new school should reach out to the K-12 Education Office at [email protected].
Existing schools wishing to receive Member School benefits should start by applying to use Hillsdale’s K-12 curriculum as a Hillsdale Curriculum School.

Candidate Member Schools are new startups that are receiving assistance from K-12 Education staff with the intention of opening as Member Schools in the near future. Prior to opening as Member Schools, these groups must obtain a charter, identify a school leader, and find a facility.
Candidate Member Schools that are expected to be one year from opening can be found on the map above. Hillsdale K-12 Education is working with many more Candidate Member Schools that are two or more years from their opening.
The K-12 Program Guide developed by Hillsdale College is made widely available under a licensing agreement to Hillsdale Curriculum Schools. The K-12 Education Office considers Curriculum School requests on a regular basis, and is pleased to license the College’s K-12 curriculum to schools who share the objective of leading students towards intellectual, moral, and civic virtue in a traditional education setting. To apply for a license, email [email protected] for the application form. When granted, curriculum licenses are available free of charge.
Curriculum Schools are eligible to apply for Member School status after two years of using the Hillsdale K-12 curriculum. Curriculum schools interested in membership should reach out to the K-12 Education Office directly at [email protected].
Curriculum Schools can be found on the map above.
Each year Hillsdale College recognizes an excellent school with the Henry Salvatori Prize for Excellence in Teaching. Salvatori Prize winners are exemplars of Hillsdale College's K-12 Best Practices. You can find recent Salvatori Prize winners on the map above, and learn more about the prize here.
