The Waterford School Curriculum
Classic in its structure, broad and illuminating, the Waterford curriculum is rooted in the traditions of liberal arts learning. Students are immersed in the great works, thoughts and philosophies of the ages. English, history and the humanities, math and science, fine arts and athletics form the core. A host of contributing courses build on this framework proven by centuries of classical education.
The work is demanding, campus-wide. From Lower through Middle and Upper Schools, students are exposed to primary sources that prompt constant writing, reflecting, analyzing, and discussing in class. The subjects are connected in a vertical curriculum that creates a rhythm, a sequencing, that amplifies from one year to the next.
