Admissions Appointments and Location

Westminster School is located in Simsbury, Connecticut approximately 12 miles north of Hartford. Our campus, on 200-forested acres, is situated atop Williams Hill overlooking the Farmington River and downtown Simsbury — a quintessential New England town. Bradley International Airport is a short 20-minute drive away. We are conveniently located halfway between New York City (120 miles) and Boston (110 miles).

Simsbury Among the Best in the U.S.
As recognized by Money magazine, Simsbury has “that special something that makes it a great place to live.” From a casual cup of coffee or slice of pizza with friends to a nice night out with parents, students enjoy spending time in town. A short distance from campus, it is not unusual to see students running, walking and biking around town on weekends. The centrality of Westminster’s location also means easy access for weekend outings to the movies, mall, hiking, restaurants, performing arts venues and more.
Westminster looks forward to welcoming students back to campus this Fall. With great regret, however, due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, we do not expect to be able to host visitors on campus at this time. In the absence of campus visits, we plan to offer as many online opportunities for prospective students and families to learn about Westminster and engage with members of our community as possible.

We hope that you will join us for one or more of the online events, schedule an online student-guided tour and interview with a member of the Admissions team and never hesitate to let us know how we can be of assistance as you explore your options for continuing your education. 

Please rest assured that during the course of the admissions process, we will continually look for opportunities to both connect online and, as health conditions permit, in person.

Scheduling an Admissions Appointment

We are keenly aware that a tour and interview are critical opportunities for prospective students and families to get to know Westminster. The interview is also an important opportunity for us to get to know you! While we may not be able to meet on campus, it is our intention to replicate the experience to the best of our ability online.

Consistent with our typical campus visit experience, your online appointment will include a student-guided tour, a one-on-one student interview with a member of the Admissions team and an opportunity for parents to ask questions and share information. 

Westminster School is at its core a community, and best highlighted through personal interactions — we can’t wait to start getting to know you!

To schedule your tour and interview, please call the Office of Admissions at (860) 408-3060. Appointments are available Monday through Friday mornings, afternoons and evenings, with additional appointments available on Saturday mornings.

During the summer, we will be offering information sessions Monday through Thursday at both 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Find out more here.
