Our Mission: Wilbraham & Monson Academy is a transformational experience where students become challenge-seeking citizens and leaders of an evolving world.
Live Clean. Speak True. Work Hard. Play Fair.
Frank Chapin Cushman lived by the ideals and motto of “Live Clean, Speak True, Work Hard, Play Fair."
The Academy has adopted this motto, which was presented by Mrs. Rufus P. Cushman in 1928 on a bronze tablet, “to honor right living achieved and to keep high purpose glowing in the soul of youth.”
