Purpose and Promise
Wooster School is guided by our Purpose, Promise, and Beliefs, which represent the natural evolution of the school’s mission since our founder, Reverend Aaron Coburn, charged us with preparing our students to be "gentle, generous, truthful, kind, and brave." These commitments remind us that as a school community we must learn from the past, embrace the present, and look to the future as we prepare our graduates for college and lives of purpose in a world of increasing complexity and change.
Our purpose is to prepare young people for fulfillment, happiness and success in life through the rigorous and healthy development of intellect, conscience, body, and spirit.
The Wooster School community fosters a culture rich in thinking, learning, relationships, and Self-Help. Our students develop the skills, dispositions, and knowledge necessary to confidently and resiliently engage the world as people of conscience, compassion and action.
