Portsmouth Abbey School is a Catholic, co-educational boarding and day school for students in grades 9 through 12. The school is located on a beautiful 525-acre campus along Narragansett Bay, just a few miles from Newport, RI. For almost 90 years the Abbey’s liberal arts curriculum has been preparing students for lives of significance and purpose. This education is grounded in the Western intellectual tradition and teaches students to solve problems, communicate ideas, work together, and innovate. Abbey students select a challenging course load from 85 options that includes 17 AP courses and 14 honors or post AP classes. This rigorous curriculum is balanced by extraordinary afternoon offerings in athletics, drama, music, dance, community service, and equestrian. This co-curricular program gives students the opportunity to be participants rather than spectators in a variety of team, group, and individual endeavors. Once students receive their Abbey diploma they are well prepared to attend some of the best colleges and universities in the country.
