Students cheering at boarding school welcome days


We are excited to welcome all of you to the Williston community! We are actively monitoring and discussing the issues related to COVID-19, and will be in touch with all admitted students with more information soon. For now, and always, go Wildcats!

Pack your bag & come stay over!

We’re confident you’ll love our friendly, fun community. But don’t take our word for it: come stay overnight and see for yourself! Stay in a dorm room, hang out with current students, eat in the dining hall, and really get to know what Williston is all about.

You’ll arrive at 6 p.m. on the night before your Admitted Students Day. We’ll introduce you to your student host, and then you’re off! Families, join us for an informal reception at our Head of School’s house from 6-7 p.m., before you head out to explore some of our great local dining options (see below for suggestions).

Still have questions?

Please feel free to call or email Associate Director of Admission Christa Talbot Syfu ’98 at (413) 529-3401 or if you have any questions.

Ready to enroll?

To complete your enrollment, please have a parent sign into their Veracross parent portal and fill out the necessary forms.


Williston’s location in the eclectic arts town of Easthampton places it a short walk from a host of appealing restaurants, coffee shops, and other attractions. A ten-minute drive or bus ride takes you to the vibrant college town of Northampton, home to Smith College and dozens of additional restaurants and shops. Click the map below to download a PDF.
