MissionSalisbury School instills in boys a vibrant enthusiasm for learning and the self-confidence needed for intellectual, physical, moral and spiritual development.
Built on essential core values, the School's unique culture promotes brotherhood, creativity, empathy, humility, integrity, leadership and respect. Salisbury graduates are men of character and promise who are prepared to meet the challenges of college and adulthood and to make a difference in an entrepreneurial, technological and cosmopolitan world.
A Place Where Leaders Are Born
At Salisbury School, we believe the high school years are among the most formative of any boy’s life. They are a time when boys discover who they are and what they stand for, and when they develop the values that will stay with them throughout adulthood.
What makes us different from other top boys’ boarding schools in the Northeast is our focus on molding the whole individual. We believe strong values can’t be taught solely in the classroom or on the playing field. Our approach stresses mental, physical, creative and spiritual development as part of the same character-building process.
To that end, we offer a rigorous program that involves academics, sports and the arts, as well as an immersion in the rich community life our campus provides. The majority of our 310 students live on campus, sharing meals and participating in activities together. Over 30 interscholastic sport teams provide opportunities at a variety of levels, while our music and art studios are among the best equipped of any private boys’ school in the Northeast.
A Multidisciplinary Education in a Peaceful Setting
Don’t let our stately buildings and lush, 725-acre main campus fool you — the education your son will receive at Salisbury School is modern and world-class. Our rural surroundings create the perfect atmosphere for contemplating the classics, exploring cutting-edge science and technology or learning business skills that give students a key advantage in a globalized economy.
Our curriculum includes a range of AP and advanced courses for college prep, as well as our Programs of Distinction in Mandarin Chinese, entrepreneurship, and robotics. Working closely with our faculty and advisors, students can choose a well-rounded course of study that nurtures their interests while ensuring they are fully equipped to succeed in the modern world.
Preparing Students to Take the Next Steps
Of course, one of the most important benefits to sending your son to a private boys’ school is the advantage it will give him when applying for college. Indeed, college prep is a major focus at Salisbury School. Our students work closely with advisors and use sophisticated tools to identify the best schools for them and put together a strong application package that will increase their chances of acceptance.
We have been one of the most successful college prep boarding schools in the Northeast at getting our students into the institution of their choice. Visit our College Advising page to learn more.
