From Middlesex School

On the edge of Concord, Massachusetts, you'll find the sprawling campus of Middlesex, an independent secondary school for boarding and day students in grades 9-12. The houses you'll see on campus belong to a faculty who teach a deep curriculum and who dedicate their lives to the development of complete, ethical teenagers. Our facilities foster our cherished sense of community. Check out the Student Center and shoot some pool before the a cappella jam, or maybe head out to our fields, where we offer 27 varsity sports. At Middlesex, you'll find a place of opportunity, challenge, and friendship; a place to discover passions, talents, and yourself; a place, as our founder so aptly put it, to find your promise.

    Attending Middlesex was single handedly the best decision I have ever made. The people are absolutely amazing, the academics are top tier, the athletics are extremely competitive, and the arts programs are phenomenal. I wish every student in the world had the opportunity to attend a place like Middlesex because it truly is such an amazing institution that has shaped me into the person that I am today. I will eternally be thankful for the experiences I had at Middlesex, whether it be learning how to write a top notch analytical essay or learning the ins and outs of dorm life. While there is a hole in my heart after graduating this past month, I feel beyond prepared to be successful in collegiate academics and athletics. If you are looking for a small independent school, I cannot encourage you enough to apply to/attend Middlesex because I can guarantee you it will change your life for the better!

    As parents, we are extremely satisfied with our son’s choice to attend Middlesex. He is developing into a fine young man. The school is giving him incredible opportunities for growth. His experience has been extraordinary!
    Extraordinary school and community. My daughter had so many wonderful teachers and mentors who cared about her development. This is that rare school that offers challenge and opportunities galore in a nurturing community. Facilties are good but the people here make the difference. Size is perfect. Location on outskirts of Concord is bucolic yet only 20 miles from Boston. Student culture is collaborative and kind. Well-rounded experience for all, thought each student develops his own path.
