Meet the Office

Each year more than 1,000 students apply for a spot at Suffield Academy. This strong interest allows our admissions office to identify talented students who will have a significant impact on our community. Most importantly, we seek enthusiastic people who will join a student body that exudes spirit and pride in the school.
I believe strongly in Suffield Academy and all it does to help students grow and prepare for the future. I also share the values of the school and think the combination of rigor, structure, and genuine support makes for a great environment.  -Sean Atkins, Director of Admissions & Financial Aid
