Welcome to The Wilberforce School!
Wilberforce is a unique learning community - a community of like-minded teachers, parents and students who are committed to the integration of faith and learning - fostering a deep Christian faith that can be applied to all facets of life, and vigorous, joyful, classical learning.
We recognize that during these school years, not only are students’ academic abilities developing, but also their spiritual and character formation is happening. Their view of the world, their answers to life’s basic questions, and their view of “the good life” are all taking shape during these formative years at school.
We seek to address both academic and spiritual formation in an integrated way – cultivating a love of learning, equipping students to learn well, and grounding instruction in Christian orthodoxy and devotion.
How do we do that?
We invite you to visit Wilberforce and experience our school. One of the best ways to learn about us is to witness our classrooms in action and to interact with our faculty and staff. We also invite you to explore our site to learn more.
Thank you for taking time to get to know our unique school.
Howe Whitman, Jr.
Head of School
