Wilbraham and Monson Academy

Private Boarding School – Wilbraham , Massachusetts

Wilbraham & Monson Academy, The Global School®, is an independent, college preparatory, coeducational school for boarding and day students. They are dedicated to preparing students for successful competitive college admission and facing the challenges of global citizenship and leadership. Their academic program creates global thinkers by offering a curriculum that integrates the mastery of traditional core disciplines of English, Math, Science, Foreign Language, and the Arts with the study of economics, entrepreneurship, and global studies. Combining the innovative curriculum of the Center for Entrepreneurial and Global Studies with a strong college preparatory program, which includes 22 Advanced Placement courses and various honors tracks, this Global Liberal Arts approach provides students the opportunity to work closely with caring adults in a traditional environment to acquire 21st century skills.

The goal at WMA is to create ethical young men and women who investigate opportunities for intellectual growth, integrate by seeking intercultural connections, interact with others respectfully and effectively, and innovate by practicing critical reasoning and entrepreneurial thinking skills to address the complex problems of today and explore solutions for a better tomorrow.
