Upper School Academics

Excellence has been a hallmark of a Wyoming Seminary education since 1844. Our flexible curriculum, which includes 22 AP (Advanced Placement) courses, exceeds college requirements and makes us stand out from other independent schools across the state and the nation.

An 8:1 student to teacher ratio allows teachers to know your student very well. You will see report cards at Sem, but you will also receive written, personalized comments from teachers who know your student individually. Many of our teachers and their families are a 24-hour-a-day presence as over two-thirds of them live on or near campus.

As a school with boarding and day students, Sem offers students significant advantages associated with boarding schools. These advantages include greater ethnic and cultural diversity, more attention to character building and community life, and better preparation for college and career.

Preparation for college is Wyoming Seminary's primary mission, and Sem's comprehensive college guidance program is designed to help students find the college or university that is right for them. Sem's team of college counselors begins meeting with students in tenth grade, getting to know them well as they embark on this highly personalized journey together. Virtually all graduates pursue their education in four-year programs; 85.8% of 2015 graduates went on to the top three tiers of selectivity based on Barron’s Profiles of American Colleges.
