Students

Explore. Extend. Experiment.

A love of lifelong learning happens when students feel safe to try new things, ask for help, and find their paths. 

Student Experience

A unique vision requires a unique approach.

Wellington is dedicated to developing courageous individuals inspired and prepared to positively impact our world. Whether it’s a Little Jag transitioning to prekindergarten, a middle school student moving on to upper school, or a senior exploring the college landscape, Wellington helps ensure that students are confident to face whatever challenges await them.

  • COEDUCATION

    The Wellington School is the Columbus metropolitan area’s first independent school founded as a coeducational learning community. Our founders believed in 1982, as we do now, that coeducation is much more than simply educating girls and boys in the same classroom. It’s about emphasizing real-world skills by building social awareness and self-esteem.

  • Real World Learning

    Preparing students to be lifelong learners and leaders means creating authentic experiences during which they feel safe to try new things, fail, ask for help, take a new tack, and find their path. That kind of character building happens in our classrooms, on our sports teams, and when students are expressing their
    artistic talents.

  • ADVISORY GROUPS

    All middle and upper school students are assigned to a faculty member who serves as their advisor. Each advisory group is made up of 10-12 students. This small-group setting helps sustain peer interaction and provides easy access to the advisor who is ready to help address academic and social issues. They spend time developing necessary skills to succeed at Wellington and in life.

  • TWO DEDICATED COUNSELORS

    Wellington offers the services of two full-time counselors. Any student may make an appointment to see one of the counselors. Parents are encouraged to contact the counselors any time for one-on-one help, support, or ways to reinforce the skills taught at school.
