History

For 206 years, Wilbraham & Monson Academy (WMA) has been a step ahead; we stretch beyond the norm, beyond the expected. From the enrollment of our first international students in the early 1800s to our current Center for Entrepreneurial & Global Studies and Bicentennial Scholars Program, WMA has always recognized the importance of providing students with a broad and diverse global perspective, while keeping tradition alive. Today, approximately 385 students from around the world live and learn on our 300-acre campus.
