International Students

Wilbraham & Monson Academy has a rich tradition of enrolling and supporting international students. In 1847, Monson Academy was the first school in the United States to enroll Chinese students. Thai and Japanese students followed soon after. Since that time, the international student body has remained a foundation of the school for over 150 years and continues to this day with students from over 22 countries.
