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.

House System at Wilberforce

When considering enrollment, parents often wonder how their students will create friendships and become part of the community in a new school. One of the hallmarks of the Wilberforce School is that each student is known. One of the ways we accomplish this is through our House system. Each house serves as a family within the broader community, allowing for deeper connections to be forged.
