Wilbraham & Monson Academy, The Global School®, is dedicated to preparing students for successful competitive college admission and facing the challenges of global citizenship and leadership. Our academic program creates global thinkers by offering a curriculum that integrates the mastery of traditional core disciplines of English, Math, Science, Foreign Language, and the Arts with the study of economics, entrepreneurship, and global studies.
