Who We Are: Wellington is the first independent, coeducational school in Columbus, Ohio. Founded on the idea that education can and should be better, we continue to innovate an engagement-driven curriculum that shapes and inspires tomorrow’s leaders from preschool through grade 12.
What We Do: We help shape those who will shape the world by welcoming curiosity, cultivating passion, and embracing a diversity of thought and experience. Our approach to education is agile, active, and personal, taking cues from the evolving world around us.
Why We're Important: We believe that a strong community is a diverse one rich with varying viewpoints and approaches. Wellington brings a unique approach to the diverse education ecosystem in Columbus – one that engages the whole student and ignites their individual passions.
How We Impact the Community: We know that listening and learning narrows our differences and broadens our understanding, so we empower students of all ages to contribute meaningfully to their communities through local service projects and global learning opportunities. We’re helping to shape the future leaders of Columbus and the world.
How You Can Help: Wellington is rooted in an entrepreneurial and philanthropic spirit. The support of generous friends and family have a positive impact on our school every day. Every dollar gifted to Wellington not only supports the important work of today, it lays the path that guarantees our future. In addition to philanthropic giving, we are always seeking partnerships and opportunities with local businesses, service organizations, and research institutions to further enhance our academic curriculum.
