    It is a great place to learn and grow! Environment is safe and welcoming. The curriculum is excellent and prepares the students for success in college. Class sizes are not big so students can get individual attention if needed. Tiger pride is great, there are tons of events setup for everyone in the student body to come together. Sports games are exciting and competitive. Faculty is very engaged in the students academic success. Facilities were impressive and well-kept.

    The experience Suffield Academy provided me has truly shaped me into the person I am today! The teachers, academics, athletics and social experience was beyond 5-stars. I can't praise Suffield enough for what they have done for me and what they are doing for the future of the Academy. It is a true community led by a great leader who is involved and always looking to better the Suffield experience.
