    Cushing Academy is a co-ed prep boarding and day school for students 9-12 and PG.


    As a private coeducational secondary school founded in 1865, we continue to uphold traditions and values that stand the test of time. Our classic setting, warm community, excellent athletics and arts programs, and well-rounded approach create an enriched academic environment that encourages students (grades 9-12 and PG) to thrive and discover their personal strengths.

    Yet at the same time, as a key launching point for young men and women entering a transformed and transforming world, Cushing offers something both radical and inevitable: the chance to experience novel learning formats, focus on subjects that matter, engage on a personal level with the issues arising in the world, and emerge prepared for leadership in the 21st century.
