Academics

The Suffield Academy academic program is designed to provide close attention to each student and a wide range of course choices. Guided by our faith in the liberal arts as a foundation for learning, we offer a strong core curriculum with a large number of AP and Honors courses, various electives, and a distinctive Leadership Program.

Our academic philosophy rests on the belief that every student is unique. While we have defined academic requirements in nine specific areas, the focus of our program is on the distance each student travels during their time at Suffield. We provide small classes with supportive, encouraging teachers where students learn in and out of the classroom, on and off campus. The typical course load for most students each term is five full-credit courses and the average class size is 10. Unless otherwise noted, every course meets twice a week for 45 minutes and twice a week for 70 minutes. We challenge our students to travel great distances at Suffield and are committed to helping them achieve success.
