Westover School

New Haven Register (Sunday) (New Haven, CT) - - EDUCATION OUTLOOK -

Westover School is an in­de­pen­dent board­ing and day high school in Mid­dle­bury that chal­lenges smart, mo­ti­vated girls to be­come con­fi­dent, con­nected women.

A wide range of aca­demic and co-cur­ric­u­lar op­por­tu­ni­ties are of­fered that pro­voke thought, spur dis­cus­sion, and help build skills and ex­per­tise. In­no­va­tive pro­grams such as our Women in Science and Engi­neer­ing pro­gram, In­vest in Girls busi­ness pro­gram, and our In­de­pen­dent Se­nior Projects al­low stu­dents to pur­sue spe­cific in­ter­ests while pre­par­ing for col­lege (and be­yond).

We con­nect with each stu­dent in one-onone aca­demic ad­vis­ing, and pro­vide am­ple con­fer­ence time with fac­ulty, dorm par­ents, and coaches.

The con­fi­dence that we foster in each girl dur­ing her time at Westover al­lows our stu­dents to as­pire to­ward the col­lege, ca­reers, and op­por­tu­ni­ties of their choice with per­spec­tive, con­vic­tion, and pur­pose.

We of­fer unique op­por­tu­ni­ties for our stu­dents to dis­cover their in­di­vid­ual pas­sions. Our en­dur­ing com­mit­ment to so­cial jus­tice and com­mu­nity en­gage­ment comes to life through the many ac­tiv­i­ties spon­sored by the Rasin Cen­ter for Global Jus­tice. This Cen­ter en­com­passes pro­gram­ming in diver­sity, com­mu­nity ser­vice, and en­vi­ron­men­tal sus­tain­abil­ity.

Our stu­dents en­gage in mean­ing­ful con­ver­sa­tions, con­trib­ute to the greater com­mu­nity through ser­vice work, and gain a greater un­der­stand­ing of their im­pact on our en­vi­ron­ment. Our vis­ual and per­form­ing arts pro­grams of­fer stu­dents the op­por­tu­nity to study and share their work on the stage and through paint­ing, pho­tog­ra­phy, and ceramics. Our ath­letic pro­gram of­fers op­por­tu­ni­ties for top-level ath­letes and novices alike, as we know that em­pow­er­ing girls through team sports not only builds con­fi­dence but is also a ton of fun!

Per­haps most im­por­tant, Westover re­ally is fam­ily, a place where you know ev­ery­one’s name and home­town. It’s a place where girls are com­fort­able tak­ing risks, where they don’t worry about look­ing silly, and where they feel com­pletely free to be them­selves…and to let oth­ers do the same.

We of­fer unique op­por­tu­ni­ties for our stu­dents to dis­cover their in­di­vid­ual pas­sions.
