History

What sets WMA apart from other schools is our combination of community and academics. We are part small, local, nurturing school and part cutting-edge preparation for college and the world beyond. As the country’s 10th oldest boarding school, Wilbraham & Monson Academy has been educating global citizens and world leaders since 1804. Today, we educate young women and men from 33 different countries. Our state-of-the-art Center for Entrepreneurial & Global Studies includes the only high school stock and bond trading center in the country, which includes a brand new (in Sept. 2012) Bloomberg monitor. Add to this more than 40 honors and AP classes, championship athletics, Fine & Performing Arts courses, student leadership opportunities, and a student/teacher ratio of 6:1, and you will see just how much WMA can offer!

Considering Financial Aid?

Schools administer their financial aid individually. The keys to seeking financial aid are:

  1. Planning, including dedicating time to sit-down and work through the paperwork and process
  2. Communicating with the admission and financial aid officers at the school
  3. Completing the paperwork and forms early and accurately (forms and paperwork can differ between schools)
  4. Meeting the financial aid deadline (it's early).
