Can a school change who you are, alter your life’s path, and open your global perspective? There are many Titans, past and present, who will answer, “Absolutely!”
Would you like to be one of them?
Choosing the right school can change who you are, ensure you're on the right path and open you up to a global perspective. Titans both past and present can vouch that Wilbraham & Monson Academy is the Massachusetts area's premier boarding prep school, where students build a solid foundation for a successful future. We've been educating tomorrow's leaders since 1804, and now, your child can be one of them.
The educational experience is filled with challenging hurdles that mold our students. It teaches young minds the value of hard work — something we hold dear. To encourage students in their educational pursuits, we make sure they are surrounded by a caring network of faculty and staff who constantly engage them. This strategy pushes students to be passionate about their education, and it gives them a deep sense of satisfaction in a job well done.
Our educators continually encourage students to strive for greatness, which helps them develop an attitude of enthusiasm toward learning. A shared sense of educational purpose between faculty and students allows them to overcome every hurdle that comes their way. It also births curiosity, another value we encourage in all of our students.
Wilbraham & Monson Academy provides a safe environment where students can pursue academic excellence in the comfort of our beautiful, traditional New England campus. Our state-of-the-art facilities house diverse opportunities you won't find at other college prep schools.
We believe that the curriculum at WMA does more than educate our students — it transforms them into global citizens who, with the help of superior critical-thinking skills, are unafraid of any challenge that may come. Our distinctive educational experience includes the following:
- Center for Entrepreneurship, Economics & Finance
- Mark R. Shenkman Trading Center, which trains students in finance, economics and entrepreneurship
- An on-campus Tinkering Place that serves as an educational playground for curious and motivated students
- Global and national travel opportunities to elevate students' studies and perspectives
Beyond academics, students are encouraged to participate in a variety of extracurricular programs that enrich their time here at WMA and give them opportunities to pursue the activities they're passionate about, including:
Twenty-nine Varsity teams, including Olympic sports like Skiing, Riflery and Water Polo
