Supporting our students to reach the highest expectations.
Randolph’s Upper School is an engaging, challenging environment for students in 9th through 12th grade. We are proud of our rigorous academic program, wide-ranging extracurricular activities, nurturing environment, and culture of trust. Each student experience is personal, but is defined by opportunities in academics, the arts, and athletics.
One-of-a-kind college prep education with lifelong mentors.
Our curriculum is purposefully developed by expert teachers to ensure that students are exposed to a breadth of experiences, while also being provided the support and structure to examine the depth of their interests and passions. Each student belongs to an Advisory group, a small collection of students in their grade led by a teacher who will guide their advisees through their entire four-year experience in the Upper School. The advisor becomes the main point of contact for our families and help their advisees select an appropriately challenging course load, which includes for all students robust offerings in World Languages and Fine Arts, as well as the opportunity to enroll in AP offerings across the curriculum. Randolph is a member of Global Online Academy, a consortium of leading independent schools from around the world. GOA courses equip students with the tools to be modern learners in a global society.
Our work in the classroom, on the stage, and on the athletic field is further supported through unique off-campus programming, such as our Interim Week or Summer Internship Program, where students work with professional mentors, serve within the community, and engage with cultures different from their own to allow them to develop as citizens and connect their learning to real-world experiences.
Our College Counseling Office provides a personalized experience for each student, ensuring that they can choose from schools which fit them best. Beginning in 9th grade, our College Counseling Office works closely with students and families to provide the appropriate guidance and resources necessary to navigate the college admissions process. This ensures that Upper School students graduate from Randolph prepared to succeed in college and beyond, while also making meaningful contributions within their new communities.
