Take a look. Why Westminster?
We hope you will visit our campus and meet some of our faculty, students, and parents. We think you’ll discover that Westminster is a distinctly Christian school full of world-class opportunities in academics, athletics, and the arts. Attending our Open House on Thursday, October 25 is a great way to learn about all Westminster has to offer your family.
Founded in 1976 as an independent, coeducational Christian day school, Westminster provides a comprehensive college preparatory program developing competence in Bible, English, fine arts, world language, history, mathematics, physical education, science, and business and communications.
Westminster serves students in grades 7-12 during a two-semester calendar. It is located in Town & Country, 20 minutes from downtown St. Louis. The school serves students from the St. Louis metropolitan area and western Illinois.
