The spirit of Williston is one of collaboration. It is the foundational principle that helps each of us–students, faculty, and staff–make decisions that encourage students to consider others, whether it is intellectually, philosophically, or emotionally.
Our location has led us to form a distinctive academic collaboration with the five colleges in our valley to enrich the educational experience of our students. We like to think that the pioneer heritage and open attitudes of this region have contributed to our student-centered ethos and diverse, down-to-earth culture. Williston offers a holistic education that integrates academics, athletics, and community life with uncommon opportunities to promote high achievement for all our students according to their individual strengths, interests, and goals.
The 125-acre Williston campus is home to a community of 80 day students in the Middle School and 450 Upper School boarding and day students from 25 states and 27 countries, together with 90 faculty members who also act as dorm parents, advisors, and coaches. The teaching faculty numbers 75, with 49 advanced degrees among them.
