Visiting and experiencing any boarding school in New England is important, and The White Mountain School is no different. Seeing our community and campus in person is important in determining if WMS is a good fit. We recommend that you allow two and a half hours for your visit. To schedule a tour please call 603.444.2928 x226 or email admission@whitemountain.org. We look forward to meeting you!
A visit typically includes:

  • A tour with a WMS Admission Ambassador (student tour guide)
  • An interview with an admission officer
  • An introduction to our Head of School, Tim Breen, Ph.D.
