Hugh's. An independent Episcopal School for Children founded in 1950 in New York City by the Community of the Holy Spirit. It is named in honor of two educators. St. Hilda was a seventh-century saint and a member of the nobility. She founded the Abbey at Whitby in Yorkshire, England, where both men and women were educated in the academic disciplines and in the arts. St. Hilda founded this co-educational institution centuries before women were considered capable of education. St. Hugh of Lincoln was a twelfth-century bishop known for his personal courage and kindness. Both are in the Episcopal calendar of the church year. St. Hilda's & St. Hugh's is a day school for children of all faiths, from toddlers to grade eight. The Bishop of New York is the honorary chairman of the Board of Trustees. See Holy Spirit, Community of the.
