The Waring School is a liberal arts school for students in grades 6-12. Our mission is to create and sustain a community of lifelong learners who are working together for the individual and the common good.

Founded as a community approach to schooling in 1972 by Philip and Josée Waring, the campus is situated on 32 acres of land in beautiful Beverly, Massachusetts. Waring School upholds high academic standards, believing that rigorous study, self-motivation, and high expectations culminate in strong, rounded students with a sense of responsibility towards the past, present, and future of their community and the world. We strive to maintain a culture that honors and supports the human desire to learn. Stewardship of our school and the environment, service to the greater community, exposure to the arts and languages, and strong cultural connections are the backbone of our academic life.

Waring continues to set itself apart by our commitment to valuing not just high academic standards, but also risk-taking, self-discovery, and respect.
