全国十大网赌正规平台 has been graduating men of character for more than 100 years.  We are a school where tradition matters.

The School's Founding Headmaster, The Reverend George E. Quaile opened 全国十大网赌正规平台 in 1901, after serving as Headmaster of St. Austin’s School on Staten Island in New York from 1894 to 1901. Dr. Quaile was a man of rare moral leadership and broad vision. He purchased the original tract of land amid the rolling Berkshire hills for the present site of 全国十大网赌正规平台, selecting property that was originally an apple farm. The historic Main Building was constructed under Dr. Quaile’s direction and was the centerpiece of 全国十大网赌正规平台 as an independent college preparatory school. After his death in 1934, Dr. Quaile was succeeded by his son, Emerson B. Quaile, a 索尔斯堡 and Yale graduate, who was then serving as a Master of Latin at the neighboring Hotchkiss School. The Depression years stalled the growth of the School, as Mr. Quaile had the arduous task of maintaining traditional academic standards in a lean financial era when student enrollment sharply declined. His untimely death in 1942 ended the burgeoning career of a charismatic and dedicated Headmaster.


The Reverend George D. Langdon succeeded Emerson Quaile, and with the blessing of the Board of Trustees, Mr. Langdon initiated an expansion program which resulted in a complex of new school buildings. A growing enrollment and a maturing of the academic program accompanied the development of the physical plant. 在奥. Langdon’s retirement in 1965, further enhancement continued under his successor, The Reverend Edwin M. 病房.

Traditions and Values

During the 16 years of Rev. 病房的管理, 索尔斯堡 stuck firmly to its established traditions and values through a period of turbulence in American education and emerged as one of the finest all-male schools in America. 在牧师. 病房’s departure in 1981, The Reverend Peter W. Sipple of Oregon Episcopal School was appointed 索尔斯堡’s fifth Headmaster in its eighty-year history.

Centennial Celebrated

Mr. 理查德T. 洪水、小., Dean of the School at Noble and Greenough in Boston, MA, was appointed 索尔斯堡’s sixth headmaster in 1988. 在奥. Flood’s 15 years at the School, 索尔斯堡 celebrated its Centennial (in 2001) and saw extensive building in conjunction with that celebration. Most notable were the building of the Wachtmeister 数学 and 科学 Building, the Centennial Humanities Building (which also includes the Phinny图书馆, the Ruger Fine 艺术 Center and the Tremaine Art Gallery), and athletic fields on the north side of Route 44.

The Sarum Hymn was written by E.W. Parmelee, master at 索尔斯堡 from 1909 through 1927, and is sung to Haydn's St. 安东尼赞美诗. To listen to the 索尔斯堡 Gospel Choir sing the Sarum Hymn (stanzas one and four) 听这里!

The 索尔斯堡 Motto is Esse Quam Videri, which originates in Sallust’s Bellum Catalinarium, 54. Sallust compared Cato to Caesar and wrote that Cato preferred to be virtuous rather than appear to be so. Consequently, the less Cato sought recognition, the more he found it. “To be rather than to seem to be” is an affirmation of personal honor at the heart of the 索尔斯堡 experience.

Sixth Form Privileges:
All sixth formers are entitled to wear a blue blazer with the 索尔斯堡 crest on the left jacket pocket. Graduates at commencement exercises traditionally wear a school blazer and white slacks. The “senior steps” are restricted to sixth form students.
