High-quality, in-depth curricula are in place for all subjects including language arts, math, science, social studies/history, and French. Westminster students are exposed to a greater breadth and depth of knowledge, and progress at a faster pace than their peers in public and other private schools. Students work approximately a grade level ahead in core subjects.

Participation in the arts is essential to the development of a well-rounded, fully realized individual. Students are given a strong foundation in the visual and performing arts through regular classes, arts-related field trips, an art-rich physical environment, and many opportunities to attend and perform in school music programs and dramatic productions.
