"When a student is wrestling with an academic or personal decision, we can consider together the possible benefits and help them make a well-informed decision. Parents place great trust in us for the education of their most precious gifts, and that is not a responsibility that I take lightly."

Mrs. Angie Baker, Upper School Director


"To me, Walsingham is a place to find your passions, figure out what kind of person you want to be and connect with people who will be in your life forever."
