About Us

Welcome to The Governor’s Academy, the oldest continuously operating boarding school in the United States, where young men and women in grades 9 through 12 prepare to become the citizen leaders of tomorrow.

More than 400 students from 23 states and 18 countries create a vibrant, fascinating global community. Two-thirds board and one-third are day students.

Innovation and a forward focus are as much a part of Governor’s as our 250-year-old history. Always we have embraced change…to prepare each new generation with the knowledge and character to be full citizens of the world. 

What does this mean to you today? You can expect academic rigor and a commitment to best practices in teaching…a co-curriculum that stretches and develops the character of our students…a community that values the arts and encourages students to explore and take risks…a commitment to a motto of service that has real meaning in the daily lives of our students.

There’s always more to learn. Explore our site, discover more about Governor’s students and alumni through our interactive experience, and, most importantly, contact us with questions or to schedule a visit.
