Welcome to Rectory School. Since our founding in 1920, our commitment to serving and developing each student as an individual has been unwavering. Our School's student body consists of scholars and emerging scholars who have passion and interests in history, writing, science, and mathematics, as well as the performing arts, visual arts, and athletics.

At Rectory, we understand that each child needs to feel valued, understood, and challenged. With this understanding, our outstanding faculty helps students hone their skills, passions, and interests, while encouraging them to learn new ones.

Our school is a warm, vibrant, energetic, and welcoming community and we very much would like your family to join ours. Please contact our admissions office to schedule a tour of our campus and an interview. I, along with Karen, Lesley, Jacob, and the entire Rectory School community, would love to show you our wonderful school. We look forward to meeting you soon.
