Summary: Our school mission and statement of philosophy provide us with a foundation from which we can explore, create, revise and innovate in regards to our academic program. Centered around these "possibilities" are the belief that a Worcester Academy education should prepare students for college and beyond, provide students with opportunities for leadership and service to the community, and equip them with the skills and attributes needed to be successful in the 21st century. Therefore, when we define "curriculum" at Worcester Academy, we include not only the information and ideas or skills and processes we want our students to understand and master, but also the instructional strategies and assessment methods we use. This student-centered approach to teaching and learning is how Worcester Academy strives to put our mission into practice.

Summary: Worcester Academy's International Summer Program is a three-week enrichment experience from August 5 through August 26, combines classroom learning with campus life, and off-site activities that are both fun and educational. The city of Worcester, with its colleges, museums, and diversity, provides students with ample cultural and real-world learning opportunities – broadening perspectives in ways that only an urban location can do. A trip to Boston, only 45 minutes away, immerses students in the birthplace of American history, and allows them to sample the shopping, sights, and tastes that make Boston one of the world’s great cities.
There is no better way for students to make the most of their independent school education in the United States than to attend the Worcester Academy International Summer Program. For many, it’s a welcome first-time, home-away-from-home experience. For all, it’s a chance to make friendships that will last a lifetime.
