The best way to get to know Williston is to come visit our campus and meet our warm, friendly community. During your visit, a current student will take you on a tour of campus, and you will meet with a member of our Admission staff for your interview. Getting to campus is easy, and there’s a wide choice of places to stay and eat right in our town or in neighboring Northampton. We look forward to seeing you on campus soon!
How do I schedule my visit?
Once you’ve completed our online inquiry form, call the Admission office at (413) 529-3241 to schedule your appointment. Be sure to tell us at the time you book your appointment if there is anyone special you are hoping to meet with while you are here, and we will do our best to make that happen.
What will I do on my visit?
Your visit — tour and interview — will take roughly two hours. When you first arrive, a current student will take you on a tour of campus. When you return, you will interview with a member of the Admission staff. The interview is a great time for us to get to know you and for you to ask us questions about Williston. After that, your parents will also meet with a member of the Admission staff. If there is anyone else you’d like to meet with when you visit (for example, a coach or teacher of a specific subject), please let us know when you book your visit, and we will try to schedule time in, depending on the teacher or coach’s schedule that day.
Can I visit during the summer?
Yes! If you are considering Williston for the 2019-20 academic year, and would like to visit during the summer, please call to arrange your visit. We offer summer visits on Tuesdays or Thursdays at 10 a.m. or 1 p.m. throughout the months of June, July, and August. Families will go on a guided tour of campus with one of our tour guides (as well as up to two other prospective families), and we will have Admission Officers available to answer any questions you might have.
If you are seeking placement for the limited spaces available for the 2018-19 academic year, please contact the Admission Office at (413) 529-3241 to make arrangements for a summer tour and interview.

What should I wear on my visit? Do I need to bring anything with me?
There is no strict dress code for visiting Williston. While you might want to dress up a bit (i.e., don’t come in sweats and a t-shirt!), you should wear what makes you comfortable. There is no need to bring anything special with you other than a mental list of the questions you want answered on your visit.
