Learners Today, Leaders Tomorrow
In Westminster's Upper School, experiential learning and leadership opportunities, as well as a multitude of extracurricular offerings, allow students to grow into well-rounded, independent thinkers, ready for life in college and in their chosen careers. Inspiring teachers motivate students to challenge ideas and take thoughtful risks. Active college counseling helps each student to identify the college best-suited for them. We approach everything we do in the Upper School with the end in mind. Our "Portrait of a Graduate" goals paint a clear picture of where we are leading our students: Cindy Bramhall

Going Above and Beyond
Finish College Early with Dual Enrollment
The Westminster Schools of Augusta Dual Enrollment program with Brewton-Parker College allows motivated high school students the opportunity to earn college credits on our campus, while attending upper school at Westminster. The credits students earn are transferable to many four-year colleges and universities.
Developing Servant Hearts
Serving God by Serving Others
One of the hallmarks of Westminster's service-learning program occurs each January when the Upper School participates in Winterim. This program intentionally provides two full days of service for our students to invest selflessly in the community, as they are paired with a local non-profit or charity in order to serve them. It is a great time of immersion into the world of service; these practical experiences give every student the opportunity to provide for the least of these, as instructed in Matthew 25.
Westminster's service organizations include both the National Beta Club and the National Honor Society (NHS). Students must meet specific academic criteria and make contributions to recognized community service organizations. This individual commitment by each student goes beyond the school-sponsored community events at Westminster.time you checkout to contribute to our school.
Innovative Teaching and Learning
Engaging Our Students in Learning for the 21st Century
Technology is simply the tool we use to break down the walls of our classrooms so that our learning experiences reach past the confines of our school. Westminster trains students to become leaders in the use of technology with excellence and discernment as a means to collaborate meaningfully, communicate effectively, engage civically, and problem-solve creatively in order to benefit their local and global communities for the sake of Christ.
Preparing Students For College and Beyond
At Westminster, students are able to be in an environment where Christian thought, faith and practice are integrated into every experience, and they are given the opportunity to learn who they are, what they love, and ultimately how to make thoughtful and appropriate choices about their futures. Furthermore, because Westminster is a college preparatory school, the curriculum has been designed in its scope and depth to prepare students to enter their college coursework.
