Waterford inspires individuals to pursue lives of meaning and purpose by providing a world-class liberal arts education that stimulates intellect, ignites passion, and shapes character. This is more important today than at any time in our recent history. I read recently this quote from James Freedman, the former president of Dartmouth College, who maintained that with the liberal arts “we are better able to make sense of the events that either break over us, like a wave, or quietly envelop us before we know it, like a drifting fog. … When the ground seems to shake and shift beneath us, liberal education provides perspective, enabling us to see life steadily and to see it whole.”
This timely reminder to us all that education which uniquely emphasizes critical thinking, collaboration, communication, cross-cultural competency, and creativity — allows our young people to nimbly navigate this moment of global disruption. Waterford students develop persistence, determination, grit, character and service beyond self through the depth and breadth and mastery of the liberal arts.
We are eager to provide all the information that you need to learn more about the amazing experiences that await your child at Waterford School. We are here to help, eager to connect, and look forward to getting acquainted with your family!
With every good wish,
Director of Admission & Enrollment Management
FIRST WEEK OF SCHOOL, 2020-21
Although some things look different this year - we are wearing masks, students are sitting slightly further from each other, and we are even more mindful of having clean hands than ever before - we have seen, in these first few days, the beauty and joy of learning together again. We are grateful to have teachers and students back on campus, both online and in-person. Enjoy this video, narrated by Dr. Melanie Battistone, Lower School Head and Dr. Brandon Bennett, Associate Head of School.
