Prior to starting The Geneva School of Manhattan, Rim Hinckley taught mathematics in public schools in Lancaster, PA, Weston, MA, and at the United Nations International School. Along with other Christian believers, she began planning for a classical Christian school in Manhattan in 1995. After a year of planning, praying, pursuing real estate leads, and completing city requirements, Geneva School opened in September 1996 with twenty-two students in three grades. After several years serving as the founder and Head of School, Ms. Hinckley stepped down as full-time headmaster to spend time with her young family. On occasion, she served on the Board of Trustees for the School until 2011, when she again resumed Head of School responsibilities. Under her leadership, the School has grown to 285 students. Ms. Hinckley also serves on the boards of PAVE Academy, Messiah University (previously Messiah College,) and Hope for New York. She was Teaching Leader for Bible Study Fellowship International from 1996 to 2000. She and her husband Carter Hinckley have two sons, C.J. and Charlie (‘14 and ‘16).
