Our Mission

The Stanwich School provides an accelerated academic program within a community that inspires students to be their best, help others be their best, and make God’s world a better place. 

The Stanwich School Experience

The Stanwich School is a coeducational, independent, college-preparatory school serving students in Pre-Kindergarten through Grade 12.  Our supportive community of faculty and parents is dedicated to educating the whole student — mind, body and spirit.

At Stanwich, exemplary faculty deliver focused, individualized attention that challenges students to achieve their personal best.  The academic experience is enriched by vibrant visual and performing arts programs, a competitive yet inclusive athletics program, and meaningful service learning.

Stanwich holds its students not only to high academic standards, but also to high ethical standards.  These ethical standards are based on the shared values of the Jewish and Christian traditions, as expressed in the Ten Commandments and the Golden Rule.  Our distinctive “values curriculum” embraces students of all faiths and backgrounds, and emphasizes the “Stanwich Seven” virtues: Courage, Compassion, Commitment, Wisdom, Honesty, Forgiveness and Joy.

As Stanwich students mature, we expect them to become leaders in our community who are equipped to succeed in college and lead lives of character and purpose.
