About Wyoming Seminary
Wyoming Seminary, or “Sem” as it is affectionately known, is situated in the beautiful Wyoming valley of northeast Pennsylvania, famously dubbed, the “valley with a heart.” In close proximity to the Poconos, the area contains many opportunities for outdoor pursuits with its picturesque mountains and lakes. Sem is also only two hours from New York City and Philadelphia.
Known as a school that encourages faculty and students to develop individuality and strength of character, there are abundant opportunities for student participation in a wide variety of well-developed athletic, artistic, and extra-curricular activities. Wyoming Seminary has always been a caring, diverse school that enrolls students from around northeast Pennsylvania, the United States and the world. With 174 years of successful educational service and a tradition of academic excellence, Wyoming Seminary enjoys a strong place in the independent school world.
Sem is where students can study their creative craft and present it on stage, in an ensemble, on the dance floor, or in a gallery. Sem’s creative arts programs are broad and deep, with a seasoned, dedicated faculty who nurture students to develop the full range of their creative talents. Our recently completed $16.3 million Kirby Center for Creative Arts provides professional-level practice rooms, classrooms, a dance studio, as well as a 600-seat theater with technology, lighting, and acoustics that rival those found on many college campuses. Recent acts to appear on stage at Sem include the world-renowned José Limón dance company and Wynton Marsalis and his jazz quintet, among others.
