Rectory, located on 138 picturesque acres in NE CT, is devoted to the total development of each student in a nurturing environment that celebrates the individual and helps each student discover his and her passion for learning. Our flexible curriculum, caring faculty, small classes, and extensive offerings in the arts and athletics serve students across a broad range of abilities. The linchpin is our Individualized Instruction Program (IIP), which can provide tutoring each academic day, whether for support or enrichment. Our performing and visual arts facilities, state-of-the art weight room, and remodeled houses for female boarders make the campus a vital, energetic place to be. Our signature program, March Experiential Learning Program (MELP) devotes a week in March to pursue education outside the classroom through creative, dynamic courses that include travel throughout the country. Our Monday Clubs and weekend activities add to the positive Rectory experience that keeps our students eager to learn and to build character. Since 1920 we have been making a difference in the lives of young people. We say it quite simply: Our students love it here!
