The Hill Center was established in 1977 in Durham, North Carolina as the Hill Learning Development Center, with a mission to provide an intensive remediation program for students with specific learning disabilities or attention deficit disorders. Originally established as an adjunct program of nearby Durham Academy, in 1980 the Center was dedicated to founder George Watts Hill (pictured on right with his wife Anne Hill) and renamed The Hill Center. In 1998, The Hill Center became a separate 501(c)3 nonprofit organization with its own Board of Directors. Today, Hill operates as an affiliate of Durham Academy and serves a range of public and private school students, teachers, schools, and school districts.
