Wellington is a college-preparatory school with a focus on developing the habits and attitudes of world-ready citizens beginning in pre-kindergarten and becoming more sophisticated as students advance.
Wellington offers a demanding curriculum with accelerated coursework. Classes are small. Individual attention is the norm. The program is structured, yet flexible. Our teachers are masters at differentiated instruction to help each student learn in a way that speaks to his or her strengths.
Our students achieve their greatest potential through a school environment that has an adaptive social awareness. We emphasize responsibility and compassion, we value cooperation and we strive to foster a broad perspective of the world.
Our students develop a confident sense of self that delights in learning, celebrates individuality and embraces challenges and opportunities.
Our curriculum is inspiring and balances education by promoting discovery and innovation, motivating deep and lifelong interests and encouraging multiple visions of success.
Wellington provides a forward-thinking learning environment with a caring, connected community. Each member of that community looks after and respects one another, collaborates and interacts, and engages with the world around them.
Wellington is a vibrant environment that feels joyful and energetic; our community actively seeks and supports diversity; and we embrace risk-taking inside and outside the classroom as students find a safe environment to fail and then try again.
Our flexible liberal arts approach emphasizes active learning as opposed to textbook memorization, encourages the pursuit of individual passions and respects the whole person. Our curriculum challenges students with a degree of difficulty appropriate to a college-preparatory learning community. We encourage each student to explore a variety of disciplines, and to study those they are passionate about in great depth.
