ArabicChinese (Simplified)EnglishRussianSpanish

We are so excited that you are interested in exploring our unique and dynamic community. We hope you will enjoy reviewing our program through this website; but know that what is truly special about our school is our people and the deep relationships that we nurture through our program.
Lick-Wilmerding High School stands apart as a profoundly unique educational institution driven by its founding philosophy of being a private school with a public purpose. The school mission affirms our commitment to our students by “inspiring them to become lifelong learners who contribute to the world with confidence and compassion.” Students forge enduring connections with their peers, with faculty, and with the subjects they explore. These relationships are born out of a passion shared by all members of the LWHS community to be fully engaged with each other and with all that our world has to offer, bringing our best selves and inspiring the best in others.
Since our founding in 1895, LWHS has cultivated a commitment to nourishing the “head, heart, and hands” of students from all walks of life. Our devoted adults animate in students a commitment to community, a motivation to deeply explore interests, and a desire to impact the lives of others. We hope you will visit us and learn exactly why this school is so special. Our admissions team is excited to introduce you to Lick-Wilmerding High School and help you on your journey of discovery through the process. We look forward to meeting you!
With a commitment to compassion and community,
Katie Titus
