Groton School

     Tel: (978)448-7510
Grades: 8 - 12 | 374 students
Founded in 1884 by Rev.
Endicott Peabody, Groton's original aims included the intellectual, moral and physical development of its students in grades seven through twelve towards preparation for both college and "the active work of life".
Now a coeducational, primarily residential school of 175 girls and 175 boys in grades eight through twelve, we set for our students the highest standards of academic achievement, intellectual growth, ethical awareness and behavior, sportsmanship, athletic endeavor and service to others.
The School takes leadership seriously, and our concern for character is a point of distinction.
Our mission has never been narrowly to prepare students for college, but rather always to provide an experience which, while academically rigorous, goes far beyond college requirements, addressing important personal aspects of growth and maturity.
Our unflagging commitment to each student's intellectual, moral, and physical growth and to the considerable resources of faculty, facility, and locale creates a school which is larger than the sum of its parts.
