Overview

Overview

Westminster School says

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 for academic success and the rigors of college while cultivating in them a love of learning that becomes a lifelong habit. Westminster is a diverse, close-knit community of 86 faculty and 390 students (two-thirds boarding, one-third day) from across the country (26 states) and around the world (23 countries). Nearly one third of the students receive financial aid from the more than $3.7 million awarded each year. Westminster School, on its 200-acre campus overlooking the Farmington Valley, is a place where scholarship, citizenship, sportsmanship and leadership thrive. Admission is highly selective and based on more than excellent grades. We seek young men and women who have accomplished much already and who hold the promise of achieving more in an environment that simultaneously pushes and supports them.
