Academics at Cushing Academy

Our graduates want to share how Cushing primed them for success in college and beyond.

Many of our students say Cushing transformed them as scholars.

“CUSHING HAS BEEN THE TURNING POINT OF MY LIFE. MY TEACHERS ENCOURAGE ME EVERY DAY AND I HAVE GROWN INTO MYSELF—INDEPENDENT, RESPONSIBLE, AND SUCCESSFUL.”

—Constantine, Hong Kong

Cushing students find challenge and support in every academic subject.

  • Choose from over 130 courses
  • 27 AP/advanced classes
  • An average of 12 students per class
“The teachers here are so available to you. They help you find your way.”

—Rachel, Massachusetts

Our faculty members are creative, collaborative, and inspiring.

Cushing students ask questions, reflect, and think critically.

Recently, Cushing students have:

  • Designed and built scaled models of “dream homes” and commercial buildings in architecture classes
  • Collaborated in teams in economics classes to juggle the priorities of a simulated town budget
  • Traveled to Harvard Medical School to hear top scholars discuss the latest strategies in responding to global health concerns
  • Applied computer programming skills to solve problems in real-life case studies
  • Presented TEDx talks on such topics as the power of language, taking risks, and changing perspectives
  • Engaged in hands-on scientific research, such as processing flash chromatography columns
“Our students relish the opportunities surrounding them and push themselves to new levels of achievement. Come to Cushing because your light can shine brightly here.”

—Margaret Lee, Co-Head of School for Academic Affairs and Student Life
