Since 1834 Worcester Academy has educated students to "Achieve the Honorable." Our mission is to prepare able students for college and later life through a comprehensive program of academics, athletics, the arts and service to our community.
The Academy promotes the development of our students in a shared educational experience that recognizes the value of challenge.
A Worcester Academy education is characterized by attention to individual needs while fostering self-reliance as students mature as learners.
We believe that the school draws its strength and character from the vitality and diversity of its students, faculty and local community.
We also believe that learning does not occur solely in the classroom, but also takes place on the athletic field, the stage, in the dormitories and in the life of, and service to, the neighborhood and city of which we are a part.
In each venue we strive to teach the skills and habits of learning and an appreciation for the value of working with others toward a common goal.
The Academy aspires to instill the qualities necessary to also be leaders in a changing world.
Our students must be equipped to become responsible citizens in a pluralistic, global society of increasing complexity.
We believe in the values of inquiry, honesty, hard work and respect for the ideas and property of others.
