Annual Fund Message from
Head of School Mya Sullivan
The Welsh Hills Story

Once upon a time, a group of families decided they wanted a different type of experience for their children, and they thought, “We should open a school.” After three years of research and planning, they did!


In 1979, they opened the doors to the

Welsh Hills School, and so our story began. Under the direction of Katie Naul, Welsh Hills School began with second through eighth-grade students, with the purpose of providing, “ excellent academic program through the use of a variety of teaching methods.”


The philosophy of the school was to provide an education that was experimental, creative and involved the practical use of knowledge. The founders understood the value of a program that serves the needs of the whole child.

Today, we continue that tradition.


We build lifelong learners, independent critical thinkers, and creative problem-solvers, and we nurture in our students a compassionate respect for others.


As with so many independent schools, tuition generates only 80% of funding for our operating costs. We are committed to providing an exceptional experience for families in Licking County and beyond. To do so requires additional financial resources beyond that derived from tuition.

Your gift to our annual fund allows us to continue to offer hands-on learning activities, outside-of-the-classroom experiences, professional development for our teachers, and financial aid so that more students have access to the experience that makes Welsh Hills School so distinctive.


Your participation, at any level, is an investment not just in our school but in a child who will shape our future.


We are so grateful for your support and the
key role you play in our continued story.


Thank you!
