Student & Parent Handbook

This new online resource replaces the former Student & Parent Handbook printed version

A dedication to living by high standards is vitally important at Suffield Academy. This handbook covers expectations of the school’s policies and expectations. It also outlines Suffield’s philosophy and mission. The core of the document—Suffield’s emphasis on providing a structured, challenging, encouraging program for all students—is intended to remain steadfast.

Suffield Academy community members must agree to the items below for the 2021-2022 academic year. Please electronically sign the Student & Parent Handbook Agreement form after you have read each section.
