Why a classical, Christian education? We offer an advanced curriculum, a well-rounded education, excellent college acceptances, and a supportive, Christian environment in beautiful Princeton, NJ.

The Wilberforce School is committed to the health and safety of our community. We have successfully returned to campus this fall, with many new safety procedures in place. We are also serving families who will continue to learn from home with a blended learning approach. Find our full reopening and safety plan here.
