Mission statement

Westminster is a Christian, independent day school for boys and girls, which seeks to develop the whole person for college and for life through excellent education.

Statement of faith

"Our Christian Mission"

Westminster is a Christian school. We hold a deep commitment to our Christian mission, seeking to model the scriptural description of Jesus as "growing in wisdom and in stature, and in favor with God and man" (Luke 2:52). We are guided by Jesus' teaching to love and serve and are inspired to reflect these values in our school community, programs, and priorities. These values also lead us to be open to all traditions and people.

As an inclusive Christian school, Westminster honors the substance and practice of other religions and seeks to support and encourage students of all faiths, beliefs, cultures, and backgrounds. We welcome and learn from community members of many different religious traditions. We believe that such inclusion and respect for the dignity of all people is at the heart of Christianity. These manifestations of a thriving and vibrant community produce lifelong learners who lead with compassion and integrity.
