Portsmouth Abbey School


When you become a Raven at Portsmouth Abbey School, you join an independent, co-educational community that embraces your uniqueness and welcomes you as no other school can. You arrive at your home away from home, build lifelong friendships and discover passions you didn’t know you had.

Catholic means universal, and our students come from all backgrounds. As a Benedictine boarding and day school for grades 9–12, we offer a broad, liberal arts education that supports academic excellence while fostering spiritual, athletic and artistic pursuits. With 43 athletic teams and 25 student-led clubs, you’ll have no shortage of leadership opportunities. You will grow in knowledge and grace through hands-on scientific research, engagement in the performing arts, service, and flourishing community life. Plus, you’ll be just over an hour from Boston, with breathtaking views of Rhode Island’s classic coast as you walk to class.
