Legacies

A Family Affair

Suffield Academy is very much a family school, with 35% of its student body having biological ties (siblings, children, or grandchildren of alumni). The Legacy Scholarship is available to new day and boarding students entering grades 9-12 (including postgraduates) whose parent or grandparent also attended Suffield. It is awarded on the basis of one or more of the following: academic achievement, athletic and/or artistic contributions, and community leadership.

Students do not need to qualify for financial aid to be considered for this award. For additional information about the legacy recruitment program, contact the admissions office at 860-386-4440.
