Grit & Grace
These words are more than our motto, they describe our community and how we go about living and learning.
Core Values
Westminster’s core values promote a commitment and dedication to personal behavior by emphasizing the importance of building community, developing character, finding balance and encouraging involvement.
With AP offerings covering every subject area of the college-preparatory curriculum, Westminster offers an academic program one might expect to find at a larger school.
With 95 faculty members 70 percent hold advanced degrees, 62 live on campus, and 12 are alumni. 
Comfortable Size 
An ideal size where all students have the opportunity and support to succeed. 
The Westminster community is made up of students from 26 states and 23 countries. U.S. students of color make up 19 percent of the student population and 16 percent are international students.
College Counseling 
In recent years, approximately 65 percent of our students gained admission to colleges and universities ranked as “Most Competitive” by Barron’s Profiles of American Colleges, and approximately 90 percent gained admission to colleges and universities ranked as “Most or Highly Competitive.”
Westminster opened a new dining hall, a new student and faculty residence, and two new carriage houses at the beginning of the current academic year. A new student center is under construction and expected to open in early January. Like other recent new facilities on campus, the new buildings are heated and cooled using geothermal energy and feature Energy Star-rated appliances, equipment and light fixtures. Armour Academic Center is LEED gold certified.
Founded in 1888, Westminster moved to its current 200-acre Williams Hill location in 1900. The campus is within walking distance of a small historic downtown Simsbury with many restaurants, coffee shops and stores.
