From The Williams School

The Williams School is an independent, college preparatory, day school on the campus of Connecticut College. The school's mission is to foster the intellectual, moral, aesthetic, and physical development of young women and men in preparation for college, a lifetime of learning, and active participation in a changing society. Our students experience small classes and individual attention. Daily, students have a rotating schedule with assembly, advising or meetings, snack, a double block (which teachers often take advantage of for local field trips), lunch, and finally ninth period. Ninth period gives students the opportunity to meet with teachers for extra help, do group-work or get a head-start on homework. We have two experienced College Counselors who help students and families navigate the college application process. We offer three seasons of athletics with a full time Athletic Trainer and, unique visual and performing arts extracurriculars.
