Residential Life

Living intentionally in a small supportive community allows students to truly feel like WMS is a home away from home. Boarding students live in one of four dorms with their peers, faculty members and faculty families. Each dorm has common space with couches, a TV and a microwave. Faculty doors are very often open and their apartments can feel like an extension of the dorm. This accessibility is one of the hallmarks of what makes the WMS community special.

Evening study hall provides a quiet time for students to do their homework. After study hall is often when dorm jobs are completed, rooms cleaned, and dorms may have meetings. Students may also hang out in the student lounge or use the fitness center before check-in.

The dining hall serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and is available for drinks and light snacks all day. Students also have the option of having a mini-refrigerator in their room for handy access to snacks.

On weekends, faculty offer a range of activities that students can sign up for. Activities include outdoor outings such as moonlight hikes, ski trips or mountain bike riding; shopping trips to outlet centers, Burlington, or the local towns; art excursions to movies, plays, and art exhibits; campus sponsored cultural events, cookie baking in faculty kitchens and games etc
"I’ve become more independent at boarding school than I was in public school. I have had to be more organized, do my own laundry…it’s getting me ready for college. I also like having lots of people around all the time. There is always something to do and everyone is friendly and accepting here." - Sam, Student
