About Suffield, Connecticut

Suffield is a historic New England town located on the Connecticut River between Hartford, Connecticut, and Springfield, Massachusetts. Bradley International Airport is a five-mile drive from campus. The hills surrounding the school blaze with colors in the fall and glitter with snow in the winter. Within walking distance of campus are several restaurants, a grocery store, pharmacy, and hair salon. History buffs will enjoy Suffield's historic Hatheway House and the New England Air Museum. The Air Museum, which is just a short drive from campus, houses historic planes and chronicles the history of aviation. The nearest shopping mall and movie theaters are located in Enfield, Connecticut, five miles from campus.

In Hartford, you can tour the homes of writers, Mark Twain and Harriet Beecher Stowe, spend time with over 5,000 years of art at the Wadsworth Atheneum, and explore history when you tour the oldest state house in America, the Old State House. Springfield offers the Basketball Hall of Fame and Dr. Seuss Museum, and bordering Massachusetts towns such as Longmeadow offer pleasant shopping districts and restaurants. Six Flags New England—a favorite among students and an annual field trip destination for the Academy's physics classes—is a 10-minute drive from campus.
