An Amherst education is at once timeless and urgently needed. Amherst is not simply a preparation for professional life. It is a preparation for your child’s lifelong journey of learning—exhilarating and surprising, rewarding and vast. When your child arrived at Amherst, he or she joined a close-knit, thriving community devoted to excellence in the liberal arts. Parents and families are an integral part of that community.
