Community at Cushing Academy

Community is the essence of Cushing.

“I love our school culture. There are so many different people, from so many parts of the world. Cushing is a very accepting place. You will definitely find somewhere to fit in here.”

—Julian, Switzerland

Our teachers care about YOUR success.

Outside the classroom, you’ll also get to know them as advisors, coaches, and dorm parents.

“The teachers here—and also the students I’ve met—have showed me that if I want to accomplish something, then I can do it.”

—Zazie, Indonesia

Athletics promote #penguinpride.

  • 36 teams in 14 sports
  • Some Penguins take their talent all the way to the top
  • Others enjoy the opportunity to try something new
“The ability to be part of a team builds the whole community and allows students to try new things. Between athletics, arts, or activities…to find something to do on this campus, you just have to walk out of your dorm room and open your eyes.”

—April Winter, Athletics Faculty

Arts and activities deepen our connections.

“BEING INVOLVED IN THINGS GIVES YOU A GOOD SENSE OF PERSPECTIVE. THE MORE DIFFERENT THINGS THAT YOU TRY, THE MORE EXPERIENCE YOU GET FROM ALL OF IT.”

—Piper, Massachusetts

  • 25 performing arts events annually
  • 1720 private music and dance lessons each year
  • Dozens of clubs and exciting organizations
  • Cherished school traditions and frequent social events

Cushing students are genuine, friendly, and passionate about life.

“You’ll build great friendships here—and you’ll have these friends for as long as you can imagine.”

—William, Massachusetts

“My favorite thing about Cushing is the people. I feel surrounded by an abundance of good people, each of whom shapes my school experience.”

—Miles, New York

“All of us at Cushing listen to students and recognize that every student has potential to develop leadership skills. Our activities give students a chance to make the school what they want it to be.”

—Chris Howes, Dean of Student Life
