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.

Fine Arts at Wilberforce

Fine arts are an essential part of the Wilberforce experience; seeing, creating, performing works of beauty. To venture onto a stage or a canvas is to take a risk, to grow, to collaborate, to gain confidence, to enjoy beauty by creating it. The result is the discovery of new talents and passions. A school culture of trying new things equips students to become mature adults who take risks and grow.
