About Us

The truth is, we’re not in Wyoming, and we’re not a seminary!

We’re located in the Wyoming Valley of Pennsylvania, and at the time of the school's founding in 1844, "seminary" was a synonym for school.

Wyoming Seminary, also known as “Sem,” is an independent day and boarding school located within a few hours of New York, Philadelphia, and Baltimore. We are close to recreational areas for skiing, hiking and water sports, within minutes of world-class dining, have access to sporting events, major musical acts, and the amenities of a more populous downtown area.

Sem has two campuses: the Lower School in Forty Fort (toddler through grade 8), and the Upper School in Kingston (grade nine through postgraduate). Sixty percent of faculty live on campus and 79 percent hold advanced degrees. In the classroom, more than 150 courses are offered and many of the electives are unique to Sem. A cutting-edge creative arts facility is the home to our vibrant arts program and Sem has three new state-of-the-art sports facilities for our athletic program. Additionally, students choose from over 30 clubs and activities to suit nearly every interest.

Sem is a microcosm of the national and global community. Every year, we are home to more than 100 international students from over 30 countries. This diversity enables students to develop a global perspective that will be essential for success in the future and creates friendships that last a lifetime.
