Announcements for Prospective Students and Families

Cushing Academy is special for many reasons. Our extraordinary ability to balance meaningful challenge with support for each student is the foundation upon which the Cushing experience is built. As you may know, this fall we piloted a six-day schedule, adding Saturday classes. After careful review and feedback from our community, we have decided to go back to a 5-day academic week beginning in January 2017. While we will be eliminating Saturday classes, we will be preserving both the increased seat time and community meeting opportunities that resulted in the change. Saturdays will still be an important part of our students’ lives here at Cushing, as we establish a series of on-campus weekends to enable students to explore academic interests as well as to participate in community outreach activities.
Another exciting development is that Cushing Academy has accepted the invitation to join the Evergreen League and will once again compete in New England Preparatory School Athletic Council (NEPSAC) football at the varsity level beginning in the fall of 2017. The Evergreen League is comprised of 12 schools, representing 4 New England states. “After fielding 26 players for our Junior Varsity team this season and witnessing the enthusiasm, effort and commitment of our players and the coaching staff, we are honored and excited that the Evergreen League has extended an invitation to join them next season,” said Bill Troy, Director of Athletics. “We look forward to continuing Cushing’s rich football tradition.”
These changes will enable us to strengthen the core foundation of the experience of each student in our community.
If you haven’t already visited Cushing, we hope you’ll join us for a campus visit prior to February 1, 2017. If you’re interested in taking a closer look at some of our signature programs, please consider attending one of our focused Open House events in January dedicated to Arts, Athletics, and Academic Support.
