“Two weeks into the Kindergarten experience, after exchanges with faculty and staff, and a steady stream of daily excitement from GiGi, we feel confident that our decision has put her on a path to academic success.” Kristie Ceruti, Lower School Parent

Discover Sem's Lower School

Located in Forty Fort, Pennsylvania, Wyoming Seminary Lower School, also known as Sem, is a warm and welcoming place where a life-long love of learning is continuously cultivated.

Wyoming Seminary is consistently ranked one of the best private elementary and best private middle schools in Pennsylvania and in the country because of our commitment to engaging toddler-8 academic programs.


Sem is more than a school. It is a community of faculty, staff, students, and parents.

Where preparation, exploration, and collaboration in education start with the basics and then build upon them as the students move from our early childhood program (toddler, preschool, pre-kindergarten and kindergarten) to primary grades (1-4) to middle school (5-8), and eventually on to our Upper School campus in Kingston (grades 9-12, with an option for a postgraduate experience).

We look forward to meeting you and helping you learn more about life at Lower School. To request more information or schedule a visit, please contact LSadmission@wyomingseminary.org or call (570) 718-6610.
