Distance Traveled

We embrace an emphasis on the distance traveled by each student during their years at Suffield Academy. We guide them through the roads here and prepare them for the fascinating journeys that lie ahead. We aim to encourage and inspire talented young people and we help them navigate adolescence by building their self-confidence and leadership.

The Arts

In the Studio

Suffield Academy offers robust programs in music, theater, and dance. Students have many opportunities to excel in the arts—both onstage and behind the scenes.

The athletic program at Suffield Academy has a long and storied tradition, and we attribute that in large measure to our commitment to the three Rs: Respect for self, respect for others, and responsibility for your actions.


Campus Life

To sustain our community and support economic growth, the physical plant at our school maintains ongoing initiatives to reduce our carbon footprint and operating expenses.

Academic Philosophy

In the Classroom

Technology is at the heart of our challenging academic program. Students engage with technology in constructive and creative ways. At Suffield Academy we provide an environment where students find support from both teachers and peers, where they learn in and out of the classroom, on and off campus.

The Leadership Program

Tour Guides

There is so much more going on at Suffield Academy than what is happening in the classroom. Students are challenged to develop life skills and being a Tour Guide is one of the many opportunities for leadership on campus.
