About Wheeler
Our New School Mission

Our Campus & Directions

An exceptional student body deserves a facility to match. With that in mind, Wheeler has enhanced its two campuses with new and ever-improving spaces for students and teachers. Our community enjoys the best of town and country environments, with an East Side location on the top of Providence’s College Hill and 120-acres of athletic fields and natural areas for education, exploration and summer programs in nearby Seekonk, MA. Fun fact: in the early 1900’s, our school was known as the Mary C. Wheeler Town & Country School!

Two Campuses. One Learning Environment.

The Providence Campus
Wheeler’s main campus in Providence encompasses five acres — with buildings and recreation areas crossing both sides of Hope Street and ranging in age from the late 1700’s (the Clark Alumni House foundation) to our newest facility opened in 2014, the Gilder Center for the Arts. Wireless access covers the campus in all spaces, inside and outside. Both campuses boast large-scale pieces of public art by noted international artists. The main campus buildings surround an inviting, well-lit courtyard and outdoor dining area as well as a colorful and enviable playground area suitable for students of all ages. New, safe, organic play surfaces that use an infill blend of coconut fiber and cork invite play or relaxation. A vegetative roof sits atop the Nulman Lewis Student Center and is part of an environmentally, award-winning, campus storm water management system.

The Farm Campus

Once a real working farm to supply the then boarding school needs of the Providence campus, Wheeler's Seekonk, MA campus began first in 1913 as a summer retreat for founder Mary Wheeler where she welcomed select American Impressionist artists to teach Wheeler students (when not abroad at her summer arts program in Giverny, France.) The 120-acre “Farm” is home today to exceptional athletic fields and facilities as well as the experiential, hands-on Sixth Grade Farm Program. Solar panels on the roof of the Van Norman provide the electrical power source for the 120-acre facility. Take a flight over The Farm here!
