Wooster School is an independent, co-educational college preparatory day school, serving students from Fairfield and Westchester Counties. Located in Danbury, Connecticut, Wooster serves students from K through grade 12.
Wooster has established itself as a model school for the modern era. Our purpose is to prepare young people for fulfillment, happiness, and success in life through the rigorous and healthy development of intellect, conscience, body, and spirit.
The Wooster School community fosters a culture rich in thinking, learning, relationships, and Self-Help. Our students develop the skills, dispositions, and knowledge necessary to confidently and resiliently engage the world as people of conscience, compassion, and action.
We are a community of thinkers and learners who understand that only through our own pursuit of knowledge about human behavior, learning, brain science, and best practice can we continually improve the experiences and learning of our students.
At Wooster School, our learning environment is built on the bedrock of relationships because we know that people learn best, and thrive, when they feel physically, intellectually, and emotionally safe. Students learn about community at Wooster by having to be an active part of one.
Because we believe that Wooster is the best school environment for all children, and a model of intelligent, research-based teaching and learning, we are committed to providing the opportunity of a Wooster education to as diverse a student population as possible. We continue to foster relationships within and outside of our school community that will help us to leverage unique opportunities for learning and growth.
