Upper School

The Upper School serves young women and men in the Grades 8-12. Our students are energetic, curious and compassionate, and our challenging college preparatory curriculum and extra-curricular programs help them grow into committed, active, confident young adults.  With an emphasis on learning the skills necessary to be successful in the 21st century, teachers journey with students as they learn how to make a real difference in the world.  Walsingham students explore, discover and develop their gifts, so that they can assume responsibility as mature participants in a pluralistic society.
