The Academy At Charlemont

Tel: (413)339-4912
Grades: 7 - 12 | 98 students
The Academy at Charlemont is a small independent day school serving students in 7th-12th grades, and post-graduate.
 We highly esteem civility, helpfulness, and a concern for others.
The Academy at Charlemont makes a classical, academic education available to children from the towns of Western Massachusetts and to a small number of boarding students from other countries and areas of the United States.
Our traditional curriculum also includes the study of cultures and ideas outside mainstream Western history and society.
We believe that the members of a free society should share a body of basic knowledge that both enables individuals to grow and flourish and equips them to contribute to the well-being of the larger group.
To that end, we emphasize clear, original thinking that is expressed with precision, clarity, and grace.
We believe that much is lost when this body of basic knowledge is divided into discrete disciplines; we strive to show the connections among peoples, places, and areas of inquiry through inter-disciplinary teaching and learning.
