After attending Wilbraham and Monson Academy for four years, I can confidently say that the Academy not only served me as an excellent school, but as a second home. Set in the picturesque Wilbraham, Massachusetts, the Academy offers sixth grade to post graduate for both domestic and international students. After stepping on campus, one can instantly understand why WMA is coined "The Global School" by the evident friendships between students of all nationalities and backgrounds, the opportunity for international travel, as well as the abundance of globally-focused courses, particularly in the CEGS (Center for Entrepreneurial and Global Studies) department. It was at the Academy that I fostered an interest in international business and finance through several compelling entrepreneurial electives in the school's Shenkman Trading Center. Being a college preparatory school in nature, WMA does a sufficient job in assisting students with the overwhelming college process through yearly seminars and individual counseling. During my time at the academy I was able to play varsity field hockey, winter and spring track, as well as try tennis and basketball. Additionally, I was able to join extracurricular activities such as Model United Nations and WMAction (the school's daily community service program). I also was able to travel with the Academy to Haiti my sophomore year, on to serve the community, which truly was a trip of a lifetime. Academically, WMA gave me the opportunity to challenge myself across all disciplines. The small class sizes (a roughly 6:1 student to faculty ratio) allow for group discussions, which proved to be a more effective teaching style rather than strictly lecturing. With about 20 Advanced Placement courses, I was able to effectively learn difficult material and receive college credit, thanks to the dedicated and intelligent faculty, who were available for office hours every day of the week. Overall, Wilbraham and Monson Academy prepared me for my top choice school, Trinity College, where I will be matriculating in the Fall, as well as provided me with friendships and connections that will last a life time.

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.
