To support the social development of our students, we organize dances, field trips, a Field Day and other group activities. Our 6th graders travel to Harrington Outdoor Education Center in September for team building activities and journey to NYC to study Ancient Greece at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in November. Our 7th grade travels to Rhode Island for a three-day visit to Nature's Classroom to study estuaries and to build community within their class. A culminating event in the 8th grade is the three-day Outward Bound Urban Trek in New York City.
On campus, our students develop independence by traveling between buildings for courses, participating in our rich co-curricular offerings, and by participating in school wide traditions like the Dexter Prize speaking contest.
Worcester Academy offers a wide range of co-curricular activities that encourage personal growth through exploration and discovery. Many students elect to participate in athletics and the arts as well as our clubs and service learning activities.
