Westminster is a highly competitive environment that allows each student the room to grow as individuals. The college counseling office is the most prepared in the Southeast. You get every penny’s worth, especially your senior year in terms of college preparedness!

My experience at Westminster has been phenomenal. After spending the last 12 years of my life here, I can confidently say that without Westminster I would not be the person I am today. Academic rigor in combination with an above-average athletic program helps bring this school into the top tier. However, it is not the athletics nor the academics that make Westminster stand out amongst elite schools such as Philips Exeter and Deerfield; Westminster is defined by the unique opportunities that no other school possesses. Whether if it is Running Through History (a trip where we spent a month literally running through Europe) or WCAT (an Emmy-award winning broadcast team), Westminster has a place for every student regardless of intelligence or background. The only place for true improvement is the diversity of the student body.
I have thus far enjoyed my experience at Westminster. While the academics can be challenging at times, they prepare the students well for college. Most of the Westminster alumni that I have talked to have said that college was easy for them after they graduated from Westminster. In addition, I believe that Westminster helped me obtain a good score on the SAT. The athletics at Westminster are top-notch, and it is common for teams to win state titles. The only problem I have with Westminster is its tuition, which seems to rise every year, despite the fact that the administration does not add much to the overall Westminster experience (most of the money is spent on "branding.")
