Worcester Academy to Host a Pair of Open Houses

Saturday, October 27, 2012

 

Worcester Academy, the acclaimed local, private boarding school, is hosting open houses on October 28th and November 4th for prospective students and their families for the high school and Middle School respectively. Both programs begin at 1, with registration beginning at 12:30.

"Educational decisions are among the most important that families make. Parents want what's best for their children and children need the best middle school and high school education available to set the foundation for the lives they will lead," says Greg Cappello, Director of Admissions and Financial Aid for the school.

The open houses will provide information on Worcester Academy's historic urban setting, diverse community and challenging curriculum that provide students with a real-world education. All in all, it will explain the exact ways the Academy continues to commit itself to educational excellence.

"Our open houses are designed to provide as much information about a Worcester Academy education as possible in two hours. We want students and parents who are considering our school to get to know our students, our faculty, our curriculum and our values so that they can choose Worcester Academy as the best match school to fulfill their talents, interests, needs and goals," says Greg Cappello.

The school offers a number of unique classroom educational advantages for the student, especially opportunities for one-on-one interaction with teachers thanks to the impressive 7:1 student-to-faculty ratio. The faculty is experienced, with the ability to challenge, communicate with and engage young minds. But perhaps most importantly, the school offers opportunities to develop the child's character, whether it be in the world of athletic competition, theatre, or with direct involvement in the community.

"It is the Academy's goal each year to be considered among the nation's best urban independent schools. Our Math Team has won state championships in six of the past seven years and our girls soccer team has won New England championships in three of the past four.  Those accomplishments are a representation of the commitment Worcester Academy makes to educational excellence," says Cappello.

Worcester Academy truly has an international reputation. In addition to having students from over 80 Massachusetts communities, it houses students from over 20 different countries. Admission is competitive, but the school did provide a total of $5 million in financial aid to nearly 50% of local students.

"Worcester Academy is one of the only truly urban day and boarding schools in the country and, it's right here in Worcester. It is the Academy's goal each year to be considered among the nation's best urban independent schools," Capello says.

The open houses are free and open to the public. For more information, or to register, click here.
