HEAD OF SCHOOL WELCOME
The first words of our mission statement are, "Cushing Academy exists for students," and this is the daily focus of life at our school. This goal of putting every student as the primary focus sets the tone for all that occurs on our beautiful campus. Unique to Cushing, this phrase is a constant reminder to reinforce our singular focus to support student learning and experiences.
At Cushing, learning does not stop when classes end, but instead continues in the art studio, dining commons, dormitories, on playing fields, and in those moments when laughter is shared among friends. When you attend Cushing Academy, our focus is narrowly on you. Your good days, sick days, successes, failures, struggles, and victories… we will be right beside you through it all, continuing that learning process. Your experience as a Penguin will be unique, enjoyable, and memorable, as you pursue your passions, discover new interests, and make lifelong friends from all over the world.
As you browse our website, I hope that you can see yourself as a member of our student body, and a part of all the lessons, in and out of the classroom, that are available here. It is also my hope that you are encouraged to learn more by joining us on campus for a visit.
I am honored to lead Cushing Academy and to be a part of a team of committed and experienced faculty and staff who are ready to focus on your success and learning. We hope to see you soon!
All my best,
