Westminster School enjoys a reputation as one of the finest college-preparatory schools, and certainly one of the very top small boarding schools, in the country.
The challenging academic program, grounded in the liberal arts tradition, prepares students in grades 9-12 and postgraduate for academic success and the rigors of college while cultivating in them a love of learning that becomes a lifelong habit. Westminster School is a diverse, close-knit community of 86 faculty and 390 students (two-thirds boarding, one-third day students) from across the country and around the world. Nearly one third of the students receive financial aid from the $4 million awarded each year.
As an independent, coeducational, secondary school, we demand high academic standards, participation in the arts and athletics, and a strong commitment to service for others. The unique combination of grit and grace is what makes Westminster people successful, not only here but also later in life.
