Phillips Exeter Academy
Welcome to Phillips Exeter Academy, co-founded by John and Elizabeth Phillips in 1781, who believed every student should have access to the very best education — one that embraces the ideals of both goodness and knowledge. Now a residential school with more than 1,000 students from the U.S. and 33 foreign countries, Exeter has a centuries-old tradition of academic excellence and a commitment to empowering Exonians to find their place in the world. We are a community that celebrates curiosity and cultivates potential. Exeter provides unparalleled opportunities for discovery and exploration, of both self and subject matter.
