WE'RE READY

WRA has embraced hope, change and innovation through challenging times. Our top priority is the safety of our students and community. Safety comes in many forms, from physical health, to mental wellness to comfort, joy and encouragement.

Start of School Messages



Three programs have been developed to honor choice, schedules, travel and circumstances.

We are providing educational options for the 2020-21 school year that are mindful of schedules, circumstances and the ever-changing concerns surrounding COVID-19.

Note that Option A is closest to “standard operating procedure.” Options B and C are deliberately responsive to concerns surrounding ability and inclination to be present on campus amid COVID. All models have been constructed so the curriculum for in-person matches live online learning so students arriving later in the fall or later in the year will have a seamless return and integration.

Option A: In-person school

Dorms will be open all school year, classes running on a regular schedule of 8:15 a.m. to 3:20 p.m. (EDT). In the event that school needs to move temporarily to an online learning model, students can stay on campus and have all of their needs met. During a temporary distance model classes would run 10:15 a.m. to 5:20 p.m. (EDT) Regular tuition and fees will apply.

Option B: Online transition to in-person

Online school for students who hope to join us on campus at some point this school year. We will have a dedicated group of faculty committed to the learning needs of these online learners. Classes will be held from 6 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. (EDT). Students will participate in real time and this will align with Morning Meeting and Advisory. Regular tuition and fees will apply.

Option C: Fully online

Online school for students who will NOT join us on campus at some point this school year. We will have a dedicated group of faculty committed to the learning needs of these online learners. Classes will be held from 6 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. (EDT). Students will participate in real time and this will align with Morning Meeting and Advisory. Boarding tuition reduced to $53,275, International fee will be waived.

Class Modules

At the heart of our academic day is our innovative independent curriculum, embedded with all the same opportunities but deployed a bit differently this school year.

This years’ schedule consists of 4 semesters, with each semester containing 4 courses for students. The goal of this format is to allow students to have greater focus and flexibility should we have to go online. In an effort to allow the more hands-on classes be available to students who are on campus, those courses have been scheduled late in the year (semester 3 and 4). This allows courses more easily to transition on line to be offered in semester 1 and 2.
