Westminster School


995 Hopmeadow Street
Simsbury, Connecticut, USA

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 89 faculty and 385 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 more than $3.2 million awarded each year. Westminster School, on its 200-acre north-central Connecticut campus, is a place where scholarship, citizenship, sportsmanship and leadership thrive. Set in a small New England town north of Hartford, Westminster is convenient to both New York City and Boston and is just twenty minutes from Bradley International Airport. Since its founding in 1888, Westminster School has been committed to a challenging, college-preparatory experience. Our core values - community, character, balance, involvement - and our commitment to excellence are the lifeblood of the School. Our motto describes our community – “virtute et numine” – by grit and grace. 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....
