Students quickly learn to recognize all of the exciting opportunities present at a boarding school. Their days and nights are full, challenging, and rewarding, whether they live on or off campus. In addition to work that might eventually appear on a transcript or application, students are also learning about and becoming responsible citizens. Westminster has always provided an organic structure for this important personal growth, as students are fully immersed in a community in which they are known for their varied contributions and have close relationships with each other, faculty and staff that reinforce a sense of accountability.
Through the shared experiences of attending classes, family-style lunch, participating in athletics and the arts, and being involved in community service and student organizations, our students are supported and build self-identities in the context of a place where they make a difference.
Health and Wellness Curriculum
In addition to the organic programs, the school's student health and wellness curriculum provides an intentional curriculum for students to learn about topics that involve their personal wellness, their character development, and their healthy relationships with other people. The multifaceted curriculum is coordinated by a team that includes the Associate Head of School, Director of Health Services and Medical Director, Director of Student Life, Director of Diversity and Multicultural Affairs and Director of Athletics. The school’s schedule allows most programs in the curriculum to take place during the school day, generally on Wednesday and Saturday mornings.
