From our hilltop vantage point in a historic Worcester neighborhood, we see things a little differently than most New England independent schools. This is a place where life takes an interesting turn. It’s called the real world, where success doesn’t always come easily, but it’s worth the extra effort. Since 1834, Worcester Academy has been creating life-changing experiences for students, families, and the community. Our exceptional teachers and coaches inspire students to dig deeper and try harder.
Students are engaged, empowered, and equipped to “Achieve the Honorable,” now and throughout their lives. In an authentic, unpretentious culture, Worcester Academy thoughtfully blends challenge and care — meeting students where they are in life, helping them to understand both who they are and what they have to contribute to the world around them.
