Ushering in the 2017-18 Year

The Cushing community gathered in Cowell Chapel on Sunday afternoon for Convocation, thus marking the formal start of the 2017-18 academic year. This year’s speakers included Catherine Pollock and Peggy Lee (Co-Heads of School); Mark Burke (Instructor of Mathematics; P’16 P’18); and Genie Kang ’18 and Ethan Yu ’18 (Student Body Co-Presidents). While each speaker touched upon a different aspect of our welcoming, supportive, determined, and talented community, the school's mission was apparent throughout: Cushing Academy exists for students and develops curious, creative, and confident learners and leaders.

We are so fortunate to be a part of the Cushing family and we look forward to a wonderful year of exploration, discovery, and opportunity with the exemplary individuals who proudly call Cushing home. 


Due to rain, the traditional all-school handshake took place in the Watkins Field House. The year's first formal dinner followed in the Fisher-Watkins Dining Commons.
