About The Taft School
Founded in 1890, The Taft School is a coeducational boarding school for 577 students in grades nine through post graduate. Living where they learn, academically talented students from all over the world are guided by an extraordinary faculty on a 220-acre campus in Western Connecticut. With the motto “Not to be served but to serve” as a moral foundation, Taft graduates matriculate at our nation’s leading colleges and universities. Taft is certainly one of the most rigorous and well-respected educational communities in the world. It is also a school that lives its motto each day. Our motto, which translates to “Not to be served but to serve,” permeates every aspect of the Taft community. Taft’s 577 students, who hail from 35 states and 30 countries, love their experience not simply because they are challenged by the academic rigor they experience daily, but because they develop life long friendships with faculty members and students alike. No matter how hard they are working, Taft students are buoyed by the fact that everyone here ascribes to the belief that their role as human beings in this complex and ever changing world is to serve rather than to be served.
