Rectory School

An Independent, Coed, Junior Boarding (5-9) and Day School (Early Childhood-9)

Middle School (5-9)

Welcome to The Rectory Middle School, a community of educators committed to bringing out the best in each of our students. Rectory prides itself on taking every child where they are and nurturing them to realize their fullest potential. We do this through a dynamic program with student engagement as the cornerstone of our educational philosophy. In the classroom, through the arts, and on the athletic field, students are encouraged to stretch their intellectual, creative, and athletic limits. The result is a transformation that allows us to send forth into our world a confident, inquisitive, and independent global citizen.

Please feel free to contact me or inquire online regarding the above, and any other questions you may have about Rectory’s Middle School.
