Admissions Events

Wakefield School provides a strong academic curriculum as well as extensive programs in the fine and performing arts, athletics, and extracurricular life. Our students are eager to learn for the sake of learning, are willing to take risks and challenge themselves in order to grow,  and show compassion for others.
