Description

Westover is an independent boarding and day high school that challenges smart, motivated girls to become confident, connected women. Here, a wide range of opportunities are offered that will provoke thought, spur discussion, and help build skills and expertise. Innovative programs such as WISE (Women in Science and Engineering), IIG (Invest in Girls) and our Independent Senior Projects will allow students to pursue specific interests while preparing for college (and beyond). Our visual and performing arts programs offer students the opportunity to study and share their work. And our enduring commitment to social justice and community engagement comes to life through the many activities sponsored by the Rasin Center for Global Justice.
