Ninth Grade Program

Ninth graders have their own social events and grade-focused presentations, and live in dorms together. This academic and social support provides a strong foundation for success at Williston.


Williston’s COMPASS Program is an innovative, 360-degree approach that deeply engages you and prepares you for college and life.

Home Away from Home

The moment you step on campus, you will feel it: Williston is more than a school, it’s a community—a caring fellowship of teachers, advisors, coaches, and classmates. You’ll feel at home from day one.

Our Unique Location

Williston’s location in the eclectic arts town of Easthampton places it just a short walk from a host of appealing restaurants and bakeries, renovated mill buildings-turned-studios, bookstores, a rail-trail bicycle path, and more.

A Vibrant Small Town

If you've got an appetite, you'll love Williston! We are located in the center of a vibrant arts town, which is quickly becoming a foodie destination. A short stroll away, you'll find a James-Beard-Award-nominated restaurant, fresh sushi, store-made bagels, Hawaiian bowls, Mexican flavors, retro dishes, and a bakery with croissants to die for. Plus, you're only a short drive from the fun college towns of Northampton and Amherst.

Visiting FAQ

  • What will I do on my visit?

    Your visit—including a tour and an 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 for it, depending on the teacher or coach’s schedule that day.

  • 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.
