Worcester Academy students come from a vast variety of cultural backgrounds. Studying alongside day and boarding students from the United States, our International students comprise roughly 20% of our student body. Countries typically represented in our student body are: Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Ecuador, Germany, Italy, Jamaica, Kazakhstan, Latvia, Mexico, New Zealand, Russia, Scotland, Somaliland, South Korea, Spain, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, Ukraine, Venezuela and Vietnam. When a student joins us from a country that is new to our community, we hang the flag of that student’s country in Adams Hall. Will you add your country’s flag to our tapestry?
From the moment you arrive on campus, you’ll be immersed in American culture, language and way of life. You’ll significantly strengthen your written and oral English language skills and we’ll make sure that, upon graduation, you’ll enroll at a competitive American college or university.
