Why The Gilbert School?

Gilbert School Dorm

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.

Recently, we opened our male residence hall that houses all of our male international students. This hall sits on our school's 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.
