Williston’s admission decisions went live today, via email and official letters to applicants congratulating them on their acceptance to The Williston Northampton School. The Admission Office reviewed a record number of applications this year, and Director of Admission Ann Pickrell predicts that the applications will translate into a strong student community for the 2011-12 school year. “Our applicant pool this year was filled with terrific students interested in a variety of opportunities available at Williston. The admission committee has offered enrollment to 39% of those applying. We look forward to welcoming new students to our Second Visit Days in April.”
Applicants were drawn to Williston’s strong academic program, its location in the Pioneer Valley, and its Williston+ Program, which brings the outstanding educational, cultural, and artistic resources of the area onto campus and into the curriculum, and our fantastic offerings in athletics and the arts.
In addition to an email and a letter, accepted students were congratulated by the entire student body and new Head of School Robert W. Hill III in a special video produced by Williston’s Film Club.
