Overview

For over 90 years, Buxton has been educating students in the progressive tradition. Experienced faculty nurture and challenge students in all aspects of their intellectual, artistic, and social lives. Discussion-based classes are the norm; advanced classes are offered in all academic areas; the arts program is varied and full. Central to the school experience are Work Program and the Urban Intensive, an on-the-road study of a North American city. The lovely 125-acre campus overlooks historic Williamstown. Williams College and the Clark Art Institute, exceptional resources, are right next door.
