We are a community that thrives on innovation, creativity and exploration. Our student body is diverse; collectively representing a wide range of beliefs, traditions which grants our campus its own unique culture. 

 

Inside the classroom our students are presented with a progressive curriculum, driven faculty, and a true sense of community which strengthens their understanding and helps students develop a scholarly outlook. Outside the classroom, students bond by participating in small-scale and city-wide service projects, express their creativity through the arts, participate in international exchange programs, and compete in our nationally-ranked athletic program.  

Students may choose to either board at the school in our historic dormitories or attend as day students. This year Springfield Commonwealth Academy is welcoming more students from around the world than ever before.
