Greetings from the beautiful campus of The Gilbert School,

As you consider your many educational options, we would like to thank you for considering our school in your search. We are a rolling admissions school and you may apply at any time for our spring January semester or traditional fall academic school year. You will see the link below where you can easily download our admission application along with the list of items that you need to submit before a Skype interview is scheduled.

This past fall, we opened our newest building, a male residency hall that houses all of our male international students. This hall sits on our schools 120-acre campus. Located two short walking blocks from the school are our beautiful Victorian female homes. Both housing options along with some additional home stays with faculty members are wonderful housing accommodations for students coming from global corners of the world.

Winsted is a small safe town of 8,000 people. Acres of evergreen trees, lakes, ponds, and plenty of hiking trails surround The Gilbert School, which sits up on a hill in the center of the charming town. The school is located two hours between both historic Boston and exciting New York City. Impressive colleges and universities are found in both of these states where many of our international graduates are studying today.

What is unique about The Gilbert School? Students attending our international program will have; 3 levels of ESL, 13 AP courses, 10 Honors courses, 51 clubs and activities, 19 sports teams, TOEFL testing on campus, a local community college to take college courses in 11th and 12th grades at no additional cost, (for those who qualify), full health insurance coverage, and a caring outstanding faculty and staff along with the international team as your partner upon joining our school.

Please take the first step and download the Gilbert application. I am here to help answer questions along the way to make this a smooth transition for you. It is an honor and a privilege to take this admissions journey with you.

Best wishes as you look to find the school that is the best match for you and thank you for thinking of The Gilbert School as a future school choice. I hope to see you on campus in the months to come.

Regards,

Debra LaRoche
