Linsly aspires to prepare well-rounded, responsible global citizens who excel throughout their academic studies, professional careers, and civic involvement.
Developing responsible citizens has been a differentiating hallmark of a Linsly education for more than two centuries. Today’s school was set in motion in 1814 when a visionary young lawyer, Noah Linsly, left instructions and the resources to construct a school for the young people of Wheeling. Today, Linsly serves as an intellectually challenging school and prepares students for success in college and beyond.
Academic excellence and character development are woven through all dimensions of a Linsly education to foster the whole person—intellectually, ethically, and physically. By engaging in the Linsly experience, students will develop a love of learning; lead in times of challenge; and live purposeful lives.
