From Walsingham Academy

Since 1947 Walsingham Academy has offered families a better educational option. Founded by the Sisters of Mercy and grounded in the values of compassion and service, Walsingham students receive more than a high-powered education. They learn that everyone is worthwhile. That there is great joy in helping others. And that the real power of a prestigious education is what you do with it.

From our Early Learners program to 12th grade, Walsingham students experience an education that connects through thought and action. It is both contemplative and communal. Because true learning happens when you combine expert, active instruction with mindful, individual reflection.

The beauty of the Walsingham community lies in the opportunities for students to engage outside of the classroom, including dozens of clubs, athletics for students in grades 5-12 and visual arts education for all students.

    My experience at Walsingham has been spectacular. Although some rough patches exist, the overall quality of education is superb. The school's liberal art classes are stellar! One thing I can assure is that Walsingham will transform you into a 10/10 writer. Also, the school offers great athletic programs—shoutout to the awesome Cross Country Team!

    My whole experience at Walsingham was great! I made amazing friendships that I know will never falter. I also had great relationships with my teachers beaus of the small class sizes. All of the teacher take time to make sure that everyone is on the same page. I became good at math because of one teacher in particular, Mr. Green, and I will be forever grateful to him for everything he has helped with. Walsingham is great school and a very close knit community and there is no better private school out there.
    My son started from preK3 and he is preK4 now. We transferred from a daycare to Walsingham Academy and immediately see the differences on our child's development and well-being. Not only he learned more knowledge, but also he is more healthy here. The warm-heart nurse take care of children with special needs. Teachers are extremely responsible for children's knowledge and good characters development. Before my son started school, he knew little English. But now he can speak English sentences all the time and even at home. The school does a good job to continuously encourage different students to catch up with the rest of the class. But we feel so sorry that we have to move to another city, otherwise I think we are going to complete my child's elementary education here. I visited a few schools in the other city I'm moving to and couldn't find one looks as good as Walsingham Academy.
