The moment you step on our 125-acre campus, you will feel it: Williston Northampton is more than a school, it's a community – a caring fellowship of teachers, advisors, coaches, and classmates that is a home away from home. Williston's rigorous academic program – including 26 AP courses, research-based Williston Scholars classes, and rich artistic offerings – prepare students for college-level work. Our graduates are admitted to the nation's top colleges and universities. Williston's location is unique; a vibrant, safe New England arts town that's less than an hour-and-a-half from Boston and a three-hour drive from New York City. In our classrooms, on our playing fields, and in our dorms, we inspire our students to live with purpose, passion, and integrity. Because at Williston, what matters is not just what you will accomplish as a student, but who you will become as a person.
