Rumsey Hall provides students with a supportive, family environment to grow intellectually and personally. In the Upper School, boarding and day students engage in a variety of fulfilling learning experiences that help shape character and increase confidence and independence in preparation for secondary school and life’s journeys.
Upper School Students, IVth-VIIth Forms (Grades 6-9), pursue a balanced curriculum that includes math, science, English, foreign language, history, art and music. Classes are held Monday through Saturday with three Activity Weekends (no Saturday classes) per term. A bi-weekly report card is sent to parents and is reviewed with each student by the advisor. Average class size is 12 students. This makes for a dynamic learning environment where everyone’s voice is heard and encouraged.
