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. Every two weeks a 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.
