Curriculum Overview

Home > Academics > Curriculum Overview

Waterford’s curriculum is built in the tradition of classical liberal arts
with a breadth and depth of subjects and learning.


The Waterford School curriculum is balanced in classical roots with a contemporary awareness of our responsibilities as global citizens. Students explore the thoughts, philosophies, and great works of many cultures and ages. Waterford offers challenging courses in the core subject areas of English, history, language, math, science, fine arts, and athletics, providing students with a strong liberal arts framework.

Campus-wide, the work is demanding. From Lower through Middle and Upper Schools, students examine primary sources that prompt constant writing, reflecting, analyzing, and discussing in class. Each subject connects to a vertical curriculum that creates a rhythm, a sequencing, that amplifies from one year to the next.
