Our History

Bright Minds. Bright Futures. Since 1968.Hillsborough_facade


Thank you for your interest in Hillsborough Private School. Towne and Country, our original name, has been a private education center in Orange County since 1968. The hallmark of Hillsborough School has remained unchanged since 1968 when Grace and Lloyd Blanchard, the founders, opened their first school. Their intent was and continues to be to ensure a challenging and enriching environment where children excel. Today teachers, parents, and students work together in a supportive partnership, helping to develop well-rounded individuals equipped with a solid foundation which will lead them into the future.

Hillsborough values courtesy, cooperation, honesty, and respect for others and self. We practice these traits daily and in all areas of our school life. These values form the foundation of our school, along with the belief that together we are providing leadership for the community and our society both now and in the future.
