Located on Maryland’s Eastern Shore in Berlin just fifteen minutes from the Ocean City beaches, Worcester Preparatory School is a co-ed independent day school of over 500 students in grades pre-K – 12. The school has comprehensive facilities on a 45-acre campus just a mile from the vibrant town center in Berlin. Governed by an independent board of trustees, WPS was founded in 1970 and enjoyed rapid growth in the decades that followed. It is the premier independent school on the Eastern Shore, drawing students from Maryland, Virginia, and Delaware; some travelling over an hour to reach campus. All graduates matriculate to four-year colleges or universities, many among the most selective in the nation.

The school eagerly looks forward to its 50th anniversary in 2020 and a bright future beyond. WPS strives to keep its curriculum relevant to the dynamic world of the 21st Century, while remaining true to its values as a traditional college prep school. WPS is accredited by the Association of Independent Maryland and DC Schools (AIMS) and an NAIS member.

In the spirit of “bricks & mortar do not a school make”, WPS’s greatest strength is the tremendous passion the educators, students, parents, friends and trustees have for the school. It is a wonderful school and community in which to work and a great opportunity for new faculty.
