Campus and Facilities


Adam Aldous, Waterford Class of '10 captures a bird's-eye view of the Waterford School campus on a beautiful fall day. For a close-up view of Waterford, schedule a personalized campus tour. At the Waterford School, physical facilities do more than simply keep students safe and warm. They are a crucial educational tool, a reflection of our culture and values, and an integral part of our long-term mission. We have worked to build the framework for an organic, integrated campus that is capable of supporting Waterford's faculty and curriculum. We believe it is impossible to teach science effectively without labs and classrooms equipped with the right technology; or develop a strong music program without appropriate performance venues and practice facilities. As a result, Waterford's remarkable campus embraces and strengthens the link between well-designed facilities and academic excellence.
