Where We Are

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.
