Worcester Academy (WA) is an acclaimed independent school overlooking the thriving city of Worcester, MA.

A proud community of explorers and collaborators, WA prepares students not just for college, but for life — through an expansive curriculum that balances problem-solving with communication skills, independence with connection, and hard work with fun and creativity. Students benefit from an experiential education that expands their perspectives, builds their character, and deepens their understanding through community engagement and real-world application.

WA believes that the best education is a well-rounded one — one that teaches students not what to think, but how to think, and encourages them to flex their creative and problem-solving muscles.

From a 71-acre campus overlooking the city of Worcester, WA students enjoy a holistic and forward-focused education, connecting with their local community and learning to “Achieve the Honorable” with their classmates and peers, in the Worcester community, and throughout their lives.
