The Wyoming Seminary Upper School in Kingston and Lower School in Forty Fort are offering area elementary, middle and high school students and their families an opportunity to visit either campus on Monday, Jan. 16, 2012.
Registration will begin at 8:00 a.m. at the Lower School, and at 8:30 a.m. at the Upper School. Visiting students will attend classes, tour campus and have lunch. Tours of the Upper and Lower Schools for parents will be offered as well.
This Visitation Day, as well as others on Feb. 20 and April 9, 2012, is offered when many local school districts have a scheduled day off; however, prospective students may arrange an individual visitation day at the Upper or Lower Schools any time our classes are in session.
Students in grades pre-kindergarten through seventh grade are encouraged to attend Visitation Day at Wyoming Seminary’s Lower School, a preschool (age three) through grade eight independent day school dedicated to small classes and excellence in education. The Lower School offers individualized attention, modern library, auditorium and gymnasium, music and art classes, study of Spanish beginning in pre-kindergarten, French beginning in kindergarten and Latin in grades seven and eight, nine middle school sports for girls and boys, and a wide range of extracurricular and after-school activities.
The Upper School is an independent coeducational college preparatory school that enrolls 405 day and boarding students from 15 states and 20 countries in grades nine through 12, as well as a postgraduate year. Sem offers more than 160 courses including Advanced Placement courses in all major disciplines, preparing students for 25 AP subject exams. Nineteen sports are available for girls and boys. Sem’s outstanding fine and performing arts program offers vocal and instrumental music, theater, dance and visual arts opportunities.
Sem’s highly experienced college guidance staff members work closely with students, beginning in the sophomore year, to help them identify and apply to the college or university that is best for them. One hundred percent of Sem graduates attend college, and in 2011, 54 percent of the graduating class gained admission to “highly” or “most competitive” colleges and universities.
