The fall season has been full of exciting, successful events and the next season is just around the corner. Registration for winter athletic programs and the school musical is open and will be needed prior to student participation. Please take a moment to view the information below about recent and upcoming events.
Our wellness department works daily attempting to instill a love for lifetime activities and fitness in our students, to give them the tools to make healthy choices in their lives, all while trying to make it as fun as possible. To that end, we put together a school trip (like those to Italy or France) for students to explore their love for fitness while exploring what their own country and its territories have to offer. Last year we traveled out west to the National Parks and the trip was a great success. We have decided to travel to Puerto Rico for our next trip.

One of Austria's best private gymnasiums (schools), the Sacre Coeur Graz, will send ten extraordinary students on a project trip to Williamstown! The aim of this project is twofold: for the Austrian students to get to know a new culture and to share theirs by contributing talents such as playing piano, cooking national cuisine, singing, or practicing a special sport. Fluent in English, the students would love to teach some Austrian German to the students and families they meet in Williamstown.
