Our Mission

The mission of Pilgrim School is to nurture the mind, spirit, and moral awareness of our students.

Values

We are committed to

Enriching the mind:

  • By developing strong academic and critical thinking skills.
  • By using tools and technologies to expand innovative thinking.
  • Through personal attention and support for each student.

Nurturing the spirit:

  • By offering participation for all students in the fine, visual, and performance arts, as well as team sports through our “no-cut” policy for athletics.
  • By cultivating a climate of appreciation for the diverse contributions of people of all religious, cultural, and ethnic backgrounds.

Enabling thoughtful moral choices for the 21st century:

  • Through the extraordinary diversity of our school, students of all backgrounds and beliefs study, work, and play in a context of mutual respect, preparing them to be global citizens and ethical leaders.
  • By participating in a wide range of extracurricular activities, including community service, students learn the benefits of teamwork, cooperation, and shared experiences.

Our Heritage

In 1620, the Pilgrims established the Congregational Church in the American colonies. Education is one of the strongest missions of the church, as evidenced by the many fine schools they have founded. Among them: Harvard, Dartmouth and Oberlin.
