Wesleyan School is anchored in the Christian faith and acknowledges reliance upon God as Creator, Jesus Christ as Lord and the Holy Spirit as the Divine Presence in the world.
Believing that all children are uniquely gifted, the school offers a college preparatory program which challenges, nurtures and strengthens all its students.
The Wesleyan community welcomes students of diverse racial, cultural and religious backgrounds.
Because experience at home indelibly influences the spiritual and intellectual development and emotional health of each child, Wesleyan regards parents as essential partners in its educational endeavor.
The school thus expects and values parental support of its foundational principles and goals.  Wesleyan seeks to develop in each young person a desire to learn and to become a good citizen in serving the local community and the world beyond.
The programs at Wesleyan promote spiritual, intellectual, physical and social growth. Through daily living, the school strives to create a community which exemplifies Christian values and demonstrates their implications for the individual and society.

A very prestigious college prep school and has a great reputation. It is a very religious school but all of the teachers truly care about their students and want to see their students grow as a person. They strive in athletics as well as academics.
