Westover Honors Program

The Westover Honors Program is a vibrant learning community for academically gifted students.

Our program’s innovative approach to education promotes interaction among students who value academic excellence.

Westover Fellows hone their creative, problem-solving, and critical skills through formal and informal learning experiences as they broaden and deepen their intellectual curiosity and independence. They are prepared to excel in a world of widespread and rapid change.

An environment of trust and mutual respect encourages Westover Fellows to participate in the free exchange of ideas, while a wide range of social and cultural opportunities linked to a highly challenging curriculum expands traditional classroom boundaries.


To be considered for the program, you must have:

  • an overall high school GPA of 3.5
  • a minimum SAT score of 1200
  • exemplary academic records that show excellence in traditional in-class learning as well as strong evidence of intellectual curiosity, co-curricular interests, and leadership potential

Exceptions are occasionally made. A GPA higher than 3.5 or an SAT higher than 1200 may compensate for a slightly lower score in the other area.
