The Linsly School

Thank you for considering The Linsly School.


As teachers, coaches, advisors, club leaders, theater directors, and dorm parents, we welcome the opportunity to get to know you and your son or daughter and promise that we will get to know them well inside and outside of the classroom. Together we will discover their strengths and weaknesses and we will work to challenge them where they are capable, and support them where they need guidance. In a constantly changing world where we are uncertain what the future holds for our students, we are committed to challenging our students to work hard academically, and also to practice the skills they will need for success in college and beyond.
