The Upper School serves young women and men in the Grades 8-12. Our students are energetic, curious and compassionate, and our challenging college preparatory curriculum and extra-curricular programs help them grow into committed, active, confident young adults. With an emphasis on learning the skills necessary to be successful in the 21st century, teachers journey with students as they learn how to make a real difference in the world. Walsingham students explore, discover and develop their gifts, so that they can assume responsibility as mature participants in a pluralistic society.
Upper School Announcements
- Coffee with the Counselors is on 5/2: Parents are invited to the second Coffee with the Counselors event on Tuesday, May 2 from 8:15-9:15 AM in the Upper School Library. Courtney Dowell, Prevention Specialist from Colonial Behavioral Health, will speak about the difference between typical adolescent “blues" and warning signs of clinical depression and anxiety disorders and what to do about it. The topic was selected based on a student needs assessment where 40% of ninth graders reported needing help with managing stress and anxiety. We hope you’ll join us!
