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.

School Reviews

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.
