Our Admissions Office provides many opportunities for new families to visit our school.
Founded in 1814, the Linsly School is a private, independent day and boarding school for students in grades 5 through 12. We offer college preparatory classes that combine the traditional values of hard work, respect, honor, honesty, and self-discipline within a challenging academic program designed to unlock the potential of each student.
The midle school faculty recognizes how incredibly important the middle grades are in the academic and social development of young adolescents. The middle years are a critical time in the identity formation of each student; therefore, character development, in addition to a rich and rigorous academic program , is an integral part of all educational endeavors at the Linsly Middle School.
At Linsly, we welcome the opportunity to get to know you and your son or daughter and promise that we will get to know them well inside and outside of the classroom. Together we will discover their strengths and weaknesses and we will work to challenge them where they are capable, and support them where they need guidance. We are committed to challenging our students to work hard academically, and also to practice the skills they will need for success in college and beyond.
The Linsly Boarding Department supports students who want to attend Linsly and experience boarding school residential life on our campus. We believe the most comprehensive Linsly experience is that lived by our boarding school students. Providing a warm, supportive, and structured environment for students in grades 7-12, the Linsly residential community is a home away from home.
Comprehensive in nature, the Linsly experience extends well beyond the requirements of the classroom. Linsly encourages students to develop their physical skills and realize individual interests through a well-managed program of athletics and extracurricular activities. Linsly’s "no cut / no quit" policy ensures a spot for all students on athletic teams, and requires them to honor their commitments. A respect for competition and sportsmanship, an appreciation for sound physical health, and a willingness to persevere through challenges are values promoted throughout Linsly’s athletic program.
