Why Salisbury?

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. Our unique Hilltop community develops boys into gentlemen both in the classroom and out. As a student at Salisbury, you are part of a close-knit community. From the moment you first arrive to the day you graduate, you play an important role in the life of the School.

What Makes Salisbury Distinct?

Sarum Brotherhood All Boys

Being a small, single-sex school allows us to better foster your confidence. Salisbury students feel comfortable challenging themselves and each other in the classroom. You will become willing to take risks in a wide range of academic subjects- from science to the arts.



Schedules Designed For The Way Boys Learn

X - Block: This period is set aside to meet with extracurricular groups, take music lessons or meet with your advisor.  X Block provides an opportunity to meet face-to-face with the faculty member on campus who knows the most about your life at Salisbury.


Hanging of the Greens reading in Chapel

Chapel services are held every Tuesday and Friday morning before classes and include a speaker, community prayers, a hymn, a musical performance and a responsive reading.  Salisbury is also sensitive to the worship needs of non-Christians and regularly provides chapel speakers and services to honor those interests.

Twice each week, on Wednesday and Saturday mornings, we gather as a community for School Meeting. Both faculty and students are encouraged to participate!





Leadership - For Boys

We are committed to character-based education. Numerous leadership opportunities are offered throughout the year, for all Forms, empowering boys to lead and collaborate. We focus on developing you into a good, responsible citizen with a commitment to others beyond our Hilltop.
