From The Wilberforce School

At Wilberforce we know that academic rigor and spiritual formation should happen together. We value our tight-knit, supportive community, which ensures each student is thoroughly known in a vibrant community of learners. Our small class sizes and accelerated curriculum have achieved extraordinary results. Our K-8 students average in the mid-90th percentile in standardized testing; and our average SAT score is 1361 with an impressive college acceptance record. At Wilberforce, students do not have to specialize in order to participate-you can be an athlete, an actor, and a student government leader. This breadth opens up opportunities to explore and innovate; it distinguishes our graduates in the college admissions process.

Wilberforce students are informed citizens, thoughtful leaders, engaged Christians.

We invite you to explore our program. You will find that The Wilberforce School stands out as exceptional in the Princeton area.

    My son is in the nucleus of an amazing culture, with many opportunities to develop multiple skills through clubs, serving in student-led teams and encircled by excellent teachers. I treasure the teachers, staff and Board for their commitment to excellence, kindness and focus on individualized character development as well as academic achievements for our children. I am very grateful to God for this school and very accomplished teachers! We have connected with many awesome families and are blessed to be a part of this supportive and endearing community. I have to give special thanks and recognition to Christina for graciously and affably guiding us through the admissions process!

    My daughter started at Wilberforce this year after moving from abroad and attending several years several great International schools. From day one, She was made to feel as if she had been there for years! Her classmates, the teachers, the faculty, as well as the other students in the school, are true examples of true love, care, community, enthusiasm and passion for teaching. These are exactly the qualities we were looking for in a classical Christian Education. My daughter has grown spiritually as well as academically. In addition to partnering with parents on reinforcing Christian values, It is also an incredibly strong academic institution. The teachers are in constant communication with parents and seek to have each individual child grow and succeed to their fullest potential. It truly feels like a home away from home for her—she loves her school and so do we as parents!
    First, I have to say how amazing Christina Keddie was with my husband and myself. Our son joined the lower school mid-October and she made the process so smooth, made sure all of our questions were answered, and was so patient with us.
    We loved getting to have an introduction of the school during the parent interview and we were absolutely blown away. Spiritually this is where we want our son to be, but also how academically rigorous they are, even in the lower grade school!
    We couldn’t have been happier, and we expected for there to definitely be an adjustment period for our son so quickly put in and late in the year, but he was happy coming out of school each day! We were definitely shocked, and with getting opportunities to know his teacher — we know why!

    I have to say that for every staff member we have met, from the teachers, staff, and secretary, even other parents. You can just tell how special this school is, and the excellence within.
