The Wilkes School continues a legacy of bringing together families of diverse backgrounds. With concern for each child’s intellectual, social and spiritual needs, Wilkes stresses academic growth, appreciation of the arts, and moral development. The school draws on the cultural resources of the Mt. Vernon area as an integral part of the curriculum.

We are committed to preparing each student to thrive socially and academically in their future schooling. Supported by a caring faculty, children at Wilkes grow to welcome the challenges of learning and are encouraged to appreciate their own strengths and the unique qualities of their fellow students. They develop self-confidence and experience the value of shared successes.
