The Linsly School (West Virginia)
Founded in 1814, the Linsly School is a private, independent day and boarding school for students in grades 5 through 12. Located in Wheeling, West Virginia, we offer college preparatory classes that combine the traditional values of hard work, respect, honor, honesty, and self-discipline within a challenging academic program designed to unlock the potential of each student.
The family-like atmosphere at our school helps students grow and develop under the guidance of faculty members who know them by name and care about their future. Our strong academic program provides students with an emphasis on foundational skills, a challenging college preparatory curriculum, and a commitment to lifelong learning necessary for success in college and beyond.
With 100% college placement, Linsly’s record as an excellent college preparatory academy speaks for itself. We understand that education is more than test scores and college acceptance letters. Every day, our students live many of life’s most important principles: responsibility, commitment, time management, sportsmanship, maturity, and even disappointment.
The Linsly School promotes academic excellence, inspires lifelong learning, develops future leaders, and emphasizes character development.
