Falmouth Academy

Our demands for academic rigor occur in a supportive and imaginative community
Falmouth Academy is a deliberately small school where students and adults are able to recognize the strengths and potential of each individual.
The strong culture of respect and trust created by this close-knit environment allows each member of the community to pursue academic, artistic, and extra-curricular interests with enthusiasm and self-confidence.
We hope that our students will leave Falmouth Academy with a wider perspective on the human condition and prepared to sustain a love of learning.
Signature programs include: Changing Earth, Science in the Real World, Arts Across the Curriculum, Authentic Voice, and Electives: Growth and Discovery

School Notes

  • Falmouth Academy is guided by teachers who believe that students willing to work hard can meet the demands of a challenging core curriculum that explores English, history, science, mathematics, foreign language and the arts.
  • Our demands for academic rigor occur in a supportive and imaginative community. Because Falmouth Academy is a deliberately small school, students and adults are able to recognize the strengths and potential of each individual. The strong culture of respect and trust created by this close-knit environment allows each member of the community to pursue academic, artistic, and extra-curricular interests with enthusiasm and self-confidence. While we expect students to work hard, our school culture also encourages them to be appreciative and generous. We hope that our students will leave Falmouth Academy with a wider perspective on the human condition and prepared to sustain a love of learning. We also hope that they will have the courage to live thoughtful and principled lives.
  • The school has partner schools in France and Germany and benefits from its proximity to the international science community of Woods Hole.
