Community

Being a student at Westtown means being more than a passive participant in a school experience – it means being fully invested in the whole environment. There’s so much to do beyond academics! 

Community building is an important aspect of school life at Westtown. We are a diverse community comprising both day students and boarding students and we pay special attention to cultivating a community life that is inclusive. Shared community activities and signature grade-level experiences are part of our weekend and weekday programming.

Day students at Westtown have many opportunities to reap the benefits of a boarding school. They are welcome to come early for breakfast or stay late for dinner, to stay for evening study halls, and encouraged to join in weekend activities. They can sleep over on dorm with permission and many take advantage of this throughout the year.

Students enjoy the feeling of being part of a bustling and energetic campus that includes time after classes for athletics, clubs, theater, music, and socializing in a vibrant global community.

For all students in the Upper School, student life is fun, busy, and full of opportunity!
