Concord, Massachusetts, USA
In 1901, Frederick Winsor founded Middlesex School in Concord, MA, as a non-denominational alternative to the church-affiliated boarding schools and academies in the Boston area. His founding mission statement lives on to this day: to find the promise in each student.
Today's Middlesex has 384 students, boarding and day, who come from 25 states and 16 countries. Students pursue academic excellence in small classes that challenge their intellects and imaginations. Extraordinary facilities support superb, inclusive programs in arts and athletics. Need-based financial aid is awarded to over 30 percent of students.
In recent years, the school has had a Presidential Scholar, Intel Finalist, and numerous winners of national and regional academic, athletic, and artistic distinctions. Graduates are prepared for outstanding opportunities in college and beyond.
