Description

Suffield Academy has a clear, intentional approach to secondary school education. We are guided by shared values of respect for others, hard work, honor, and kindness. I am exceptionally proud of our talented students and faculty, our gorgeous campus, and our commitment to common goals. Suffield’s mission guides our philosophy. It speaks to a tradition of academic excellence, respect for individual differences, and preparing for a lifetime of leadership and active citizenship. There is an emphasis here on helping students succeed and focusing on the distance they travel during their years on our campus. Our mission also speaks to the nature of our community—what it feels like to be at Suffield Academy. Our school combines challenging academics and high standards with an encouraging, supportive faculty. This intentional purpose has helped Suffield and our students thrive.

Unique Characteristics

The Suffield community is led by high-energy, kind people who are encouraging and nurturing. Healthy and strong, world-class schools like Suffield are not led by envy; they embrace who they are and always strive to improve. Suffield embodies and stands behind its motto, Esse Quam Videri [To Be, Rather Than to Seem]. New memories are being made each day there, ones that will be vividly recalled decades from now at reunions in Brewster Hall. This is a great environment benefitting from a crystal-clear philosophy of how to best help people navigate their adolescent years.
