Description

Students in our co-educational junior boarding and day school for children in Kindergarten through VIIth Form (ninth grade) are valued and celebrated for their unique gifts, diverse learning styles, and innate character. Founded in 1900, our independent school honors the strengths of our tradition; and, we challenge ourselves and our students to grow without limit from the foundation of our deeply-rooted history. Our students serve each other and their community, find the courage to be themselves, and enjoy the intangible benefits of long lasting friendship and connection.

Unique Characteristics

With effort as Rumsey’s main criterion for success, teachers and leaders see every child as a ‘whole person’: a mind to fuel with proven and innovative academic instruction; a body to train with outdoor recreation and seasoned, competitive athletic program; a creative spirit to nurture through music, the arts, and innovation challenges and, a unique personality entitled to feelings, likes and dislikes who can both understand others and be understood.

Located in Washington, in the Litchfield Hills of Northwest Connecticut, Rumsey’s vibrant campus bustles with the energy of 309 students learning and living in 32 gleaming-white buildings on 231 acres along the scenic Bantam River.
