Through Stellar Academics
Hilltoppers all excel academically, but it’s a strong work ethic and a sense of purpose that sustain that excellence through college and beyond. At Worcester Academy, we build these two attributes into each of our students by living the words of our motto, Achieve the Honorable. Our outstanding faculty blend challenging and relevant coursework with the guidance and care necessary to turn the questioning of youth into solid answers and meaningful direction.
Through Broadened Horizons
Your friends at WA will come from around Massachusetts, from across the United States, and from more than 20 other countries dotting the globe. Cultural competency isn’t just a catchphrase on the Hilltop. It’s the logical end-result when you operate in a truly diverse environment. But we don’t stop there! Located in the heart of Worcester and within an hour of Boston, our urban location brings you closer to all the advantages – museums, theaters, universities, etc. – that New England’s second largest city has to offer. WA provides learning opportunities that stretch beyond the classroom and reach wholeheartedly into the real world. You’ll never be bored!

80+ club choices... 50+ competitive athletic teams... over 15,000 community service hours logged annually by our students... over 250 student leadership roles. If you can’t find a passion – or expand your existing passion here on the Hilltop – we want to know. We’ll help you begin something new!
