Wyoming Seminary College Preparatory School review by .

Wyoming Seminary College Prep School is a great academic school.

Ask questions and be interested. Also, tip for the parents: the kids speak on the tour. Do not ask their questions for them...
  • Most younger siblings have an easy time in the admissions process. I can only think of one case of a younger sibling not being admitted. About half of the students who entered with me had come from public schools. The remainder came from private K-6 schools, or had transferred from other New York private schools The Elizabeth Morrow School and St. Bernard were two of the larger feeder schools...

School Life

Student life is good. Of course, there are rules that can get annoying but your living at a school and they are responsible for you so its understandable.
