School Notes:

    • In 2002, WMA established the Center for Entrepreneurial & Global Studies (CEGS) and the Bicentennial Scholars Program.
    • The CEGS program, the first of its kind at the secondary school level, introduces students to the world of international business through hands-on experience and exposure. Students do not just read about leaders in financial world, they meet them face-to-face. They do not just study economic theories; they see them in action and learn how they fit in political and social spheres. The CEGS curriculum offers a series of courses in economics, entrepreneurship, and global markets.
    • The CEGS program extends beyond the classroom and academic year with students traveling overseas for a comprehensive overview of international business and finance.
    • Classes at Wilbraham & Monson are small and interactive with a student/teacher ratio of 6:1. Our faculty members wear many hats and aspire to know students on many different levels. Students may have the same person as a teacher, dorm parent, coach, and advisor. Our faculty members are not only teachers, they are friends and mentors. Our faculty play an integral role in helping students reach their potential inside and outside the classroom

School Reviews

  • Recommended July 31, 2014 - WMA is an inclusive and positive environment where students are surrounded by supportive staff members and peers. There are endless opportunities for students to get involved, which enrich the relationships built during their time there. To this day, the WMA family I created for myself is still a very big part of my life. I am extremely grateful for the 2 years I had there and all the community provided for me. - Posted by Student/Alumni
