The Value of a Ninth Grade Year
The Senior Year Offers a Profound Opportunity for Personal Growth


Rumsey’s VIIth Form (9th Grade) academic program offers appropriate challenges and preparation for the curricula at secondary schools around the world. Our VIIth Form program allows students to enter secondary school fully grounded with a sense of purpose and energy. Buoyed by their successful experiences in leadership and the School’s mission to be a successful and contributing member of the community, students move forward as confident, adventurous young people who are self-assured and resilient.

“We had a lot of responsibility in our Senior Year and a new level of independence that was as challenging as it was rewarding. Lifetime bonds were formed and a confidence that ultimately prepared us for our high school years.”
