Student Life

Student Life at Westminster

A Special Community

学生们很快就能认识到寄宿学校里所有令人兴奋的机会. Their days and nights are full, challenging, and rewarding, whether they live on or off campus. In addition to work that might eventually appear on a transcript or application, students are also learning about and becoming responsible citizens. Westminster has always provided an organic structure for this important personal growth, 因为学生们完全沉浸在一个社区中,他们因各自的贡献而闻名,彼此之间关系密切, faculty and staff that reinforce a sense of accountability.
Through the shared experiences of attending classes, family-style lunch, participating in athletics and the arts, and being involved in community service and student organizations, 我们的学生得到支持,并在他们有所作为的地方建立自我认同.
