Waring School

  • The Waring School is a liberal arts school for students in middle and high school (grades 6-12).
  • Our mission is to create and sustain a community of lifelong learners who are working together for the individual and the common good.
  • We assume that most learning in a lifetime takes place outside of school and that one of the purposes of school is to prepare an individual to learn on his or her own. We do not, consequently, think of school as an end in itself but as part of the continuum of a life-long process perpetually at work in each learner.
