The Williams School mission is to foster the intellectual, moral, aesthetic, and physical development of young women and men in preparation for college, a lifetime of learning, and active participation in a changing society.
Founded in 1891 in New London, Connecticut, The Williams School encourages learning and self-discovery in a collegial atmosphere that provides academic challenges and personal rewards. Williams engenders respectful and collaborative relationships throughout all facets of the community.
The school's facilities include state-of-the-art science laboratories, two gymnasiums, the Dayharsh Fitness Center, Daren Performing Arts Center, Drama Studio, digital imaging lab and darkroom, library/media center, Math and English Smart Rooms, computer labs, the Weissman Student Center and the Williams Room, an area used for receptions, gatherings, and classes. The Head of School administers the school and a volunteer Board of Trustees establishes broad policies and oversees the financial health of the institution. Membership on the Board of Trustees includes the President of the Parents Association, the President of the Alumni Association and the Head of School.
