At Salisbury we do everything right for boys! We celebrate what it means to be a boy and have designed a school where boys succeed and tradition matters. 

Because we are experts in educating boys, we care about enrolling young men who will truly benefit from and grow in our well-balanced college-preparatory curriculum.  Moreover, we look for boys who have a foundation or potential for success academically, athletically, artistically, socially and as leaders.

Admissions at Salisbury School has never been more vibrant, diverse or successful. Salisbury remains committed and true to our mission.  Enrollment is enhanced by our firm commitment to character, citizenship, diversity, academic potential and school-wide participation.
