The mission of Wooster School is to educate the minds of its students, to cultivate their ethical understanding, to develop their artistic appreciation and expression, to promote their physical well-being – thus to prepare each individual for college and for a useful life.
Founded in 1926, Wooster has stayed true to an ethos which puts students and their learning at the center of all that we do. Learning here is personal, meaningful and visible. Its also a lot of fun.
At Wooster, students develop essential skills in reading, writing, speaking, numeracy, and the fine and performing arts while applying these skills as thinkers, designers, creators, and problem-solvers. Every day we strive to help students discover their strengths and passions as they learn how to make their own meaning of the complicated world in which we live. Our students form a community. They learn to lead and follow. They clean and maintain the campus together, live by an honor code, and learn how to be gentle, generous, truthful, kind and brave.
