Since 1834, Worcester Academy has been in the business of nurturing students to excel. “Achieve the Honorable,” our school motto and the most recognizable phrase in our school lexicon, sits as the foundation of our core values – Honor, Respect, Community, Personal Growth, and Challenge. It’s the phrase every member of the WA community is expected to live up to every day. Through our thoughtfully designed curriculum and an abundance of extra-curricular activities, we give our students an environment filled with expert guidance, plenty of options, and, of course, challenge. We develop cultural competency and global perspective through our diverse community. Roughly 20% of our student body comes to us from outside the United States, so you’ll be making friends with fellow students from Southborough to Somaliland.
