A sense of true community exists at The Salisbury School
Dear Parents, Friends, and Visitors,


Greetings, and welcome to The Salisbury School! Here, you will discover a unique treasure of the Eastern Shore - a remarkable college preparatory school, one that balances academic challenge with student-driven exploration amid a truly authentic and supportive community that helps children thrive and prepares them for the future.

Inspired by our mission and philosophy, we honor each child’s path and help them find passions and discover their own voice.  Our distinguished and talented faculty not only challenge their students but truly get to know each of them in order to support their needs and help them build real confidence by overcoming obstacles and through achieving more than they thought possible.  All of this takes place amidst a beautiful campus with plentiful outdoor space and facilities which are aesthetically striking while being purpose designed for kids’ needs.

Learning beyond the walls of our classrooms is constant. Students can be found working in our garden, tending our beehive, performing at a home for the elderly, hiking the Appalachian Trail, or even walking the Great Wall of China. They learn to strive for success on the sports field while always demonstrating good sportsmanship. Our many grade level stage productions and the beloved all-school musical help our students develop the poise to perform in front of audiences. While our community service projects and clubs give our students the opportunity to realize that even one person, no matter how young, can make our community, our country, and our world a better place.

If you are currently a member of The Salisbury School family, I look forward to seeing you on campus soon. If you are a new visitor to our website I invite you to visit our remarkable school. Come take a closer look at this extraordinary community of learners.
