School Notes

  • Seek Truth. Embrace Beauty. Model Goodness.
  • Wyoming Seminary's motto, "Verum, Pulchrum, Bonum," translated from Latin, means The True, The Beautiful, The Good. Throughout Sem's history, these words have touched the very core of who we are, influenced how we act, and distinguished us as an institution. We teach students that character matters and stress the importance of accepting others who look and think differently than they do, and to stand up for what they believe in. At Sem, we always strive to seek truth, embrace beauty, and model goodness as citizens of the world.
