The unique Residential Life Program builds community pride and unity through shared experience and service. The new academic (Centennial Humanities Building, Wachtmeister Mathematics and Science Building) and athletic facilities (Flood Athletic Center) are second-to-none for a school our size. Each Salisbury boy gains the enthusiasm for learning and self-confidence needed for intellectual, spiritual, physical and moral development. Meeting one’s potential is the hallmark of a Salisbury education. In a single-gender classroom, faculty knows, understand and celebrate what it means to be a boy!
Built on essential core values, the School’s unique culture promotes brotherhood, creativity, empathy, humility, integrity, leadership and respect. Salisbury graduates men of character and promise who are prepared to meet the challenges of college and adulthood and to make a difference in an entrepreneurial, technological and cosmopolitan world.
The academic life at Salisbury is motivating. The teachers, coaches, and mentors at Salisbury are exceptional. They bring passion and expertise into their intimate classroom settings. Collaboration, innovation, problem solving, creativity, and civic responsibility are just some of the principles that guide Salisbury School’s educational model. Most importantly, these men and women partner with our students each day and always with the highest expectations.
Rudd Learning Center. The Josephine Rudd Learning Center (RLC) is a well-established academic support program that has been working with young men since the 1950s. The RLC is designed to provide academic support in one-on-one tutoring sessions to help Salisbury boys become independent learners in a traditional boarding school setting.
Robotics. Salisbury is pleased to offer students a hands-on opportunity to explore the world of robotics. The first project boys work on is creating a robot capable of moving, sensing its environment and lifting objects. This robot will be used for most of the programming activities.
