Mastery Transcript Consortium
Today’s students require both the content of a traditional education and one that provides them with the skills and experience to trust themselves to identify and be the creators of new information.
As a nationally and internationally recognized thought leader in research-based educational practices, Wildwood is part of a growing consortium of more than 405 schools (281 independent and 124 public) around the country who are leading the charge for a better way.
A New High School Transcript
Wildwood School is one of 18 Founding Members of the Mastery Transcript Consortium (MTC). Urban and rural, large and small, boarding and day, coed and single gender, traditional and progressive—the consortium’s members have one thing in common: the knowledge that the system currently in place isn’t structured to be in service to the young people in our care. Thus, together with schools as varied as Andover, Exeter, Dalton, Milton, and Punahou, Wildwood is working to change it.
The Mastery Transcript values the higher order skills necessary for success in college and career. As the college admission process faces mounting scrutiny, the Mastery Transcript Consortium represents a sea change, as it conveys to admissions officers a deeper, more authentic story about a student: the skills and content they've mastered, who they are, how they have grown, what they love, and who they want to be.

How has COVID-19 disrupted the college application process?
As a lab for the future of education, Wildwood is committed to cultivating generations of socially responsible students who understand that the world is a complex web of interdependencies.
In 2015, the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) announced 17 Sustainable Development Goals that will pave the way for a better future for all people. These goals serve as the foundation for our school’s work in Global Citizenship, which is woven throughout our K-12 curriculum.
With these goals in mind, Wildwood embarked on a partnership with the Council of International Schools to be recognized for our commitment to the development of global citizens.
In 2018, Wildwood School was successfully accredited by the Council of International Schools for its global citizenship curriculum—one of just two schools in California to receive this designation at that time.
