Visit our campus

The best way to see what makes Williston different is to visit. Take a tour. Meet students and teachers. Soak up the friendly atmosphere.

Our ninth grade girls' dormitory, affectionately known as 194 Main, has three attached faculty homes.

The Williston lion—sporting a fresh coat of paint by students— proudly looks out over the main Quad.

Galbraith Field is home to an eight-lane track, tennis courts, baseball diamonds, a cross-country course, and many playing fields.

Ford Hall, where many of our boarding boys live, is right on the main quad. It's also where Birch Dining Commons is located.

Our six-lane pool is home to the boys and girls swimming and water polo teams, as well as an elite regional swim club.

"At Williston, I was able to discover and pursue my passion for dance. I never thought I would learn choreography and become the captain of the dance team, but the teachers and other students here really support everyone to try new things."

Destiny Nwafor, Cornell University '21

"You will never find a place with people as invested in your success and happiness as at Williston."

Nate Gordon, Kenyon College '20

"Every time I stepped out of my comfort zone at Williston, I was surrounded by people who encouraged me all the way."

Anabelle Farnham, Pomona College '22

Financial Aid

Williston’s financial aid grants help make opportunity accessible to hundreds of exceptional students from all income levels. Each year, the school provides $6.2 million in financial aid, ranging from significant grants to modest awards, to help qualified applicants bridge the gap between the cost of tuition and family resources. Our goal is to open the door of opportunity, and to create a vibrant and diverse student body.
