Description

Founded in 1865, Cushing Academy develops curious, creative, and confident learners and leaders.

The Academy is located one hour west of Boston and draws students (grades 9-12 and postgraduate) from more than 30 countries and 30 states to its rural 162-acre campus. Cushing’s college preparatory program is designed to ensure a transformative experience for each individual, at every level.

Students are challenged to think critically and creatively, write effectively, express ideas persuasively, and collaborate with respect. Outstanding teaching, enriched by a remarkable breadth of offerings, allows students to discover a passion for learning and build skills for college and beyond. As a pioneer in learning support, Cushing strives to meet students where they are and provide them with a powerful toolkit for academic success.

Outside of the classroom, Cushing’s longstanding tradition of excellence in athletics is paired with expansive visual and performing arts departments. Students with a range of talents, abilities, and interests thrive in this supportive, diverse, and community-oriented environment that promotes and values intellectual challenge, the arts, athletics, and cultural competence.
