Rumsey Hall School is a coeducational junior boarding and day school for boys and girls in kindergarten through grade nine. The school is committed to a ‘whole child’ approach to education and believes that teaching academics and teaching an attitude of mind are of equal importance. The School emphasizes effort as a criterion for success and is dedicated to helping each child develop toward his or her maximum stature as an educated person, a successful member of a family and a contributing member of a community.
Rumsey Hall prepares its students for the discipline required in secondary schools and beyond, through small classes, a tightly-knit dormitory life, a wide range of sports, extracurricular programs and sound academics.
Rumsey Hall’s Athletic Program is based on a philosophy of honor through effort with hard work and steady effort resulting in a long tradition of success. The close relationships that develop between coaches and players are a special part of Rumsey Athletics, contributing to the Rumsey Spirit of the Blue Dog Teams.
