Welcome to The Wellington School.
As you click around our site and get to know our school, I want to give you some context about the place from the perspective of its founders and from those of us carrying out its mission
In the fall of 1982, a group of Columbus entrepreneurs started Wellington because they wanted a different kind of educational experience for their children. Our founders
wanted to celebrate individuality. They wanted to build a community. They wanted to educate the whole person. Since its beginning, Wellington has been at the vanguard of teaching what matters, valuing experiences in the arts
equally with academics
Today, Wellington provides a forward-thinking learning community with a caring, connected membership. Each member of our community
looks after and respects one another, collaborates and interacts, and engages with the world. We are creating lifelong leaders and lifelong learners in our students and that philosophy shapes Wellington’s approach to delivering an exceptional educational experience.
We give every student the tools and the opportunities to be scientists, researchers, authors, playwrights, leaders and teammates. We help them build confidence by asking them to take risks and giving them a safe place to land. We give them the flexibility in their studies to pursue their passions in-depth, both inside and outside the classroom.
One of the things I continually notice about our community is the kind of parents that choose Wellington for their children. Among our families are some of OSU
’s top professors and researchers, nationally known artists and some of Columbus’ top creative minds, Just like our founders, the city’s entrepreneurs and visionaries want their children at Wellington. I hope you’ll visit us and see what they see – that we are special because we are forward-thinking. We are a community. We are Wellington.
