From The Academy at Penguin Hall

The Academy at Penguin Hall (APH) is the only independent, college preparatory school for girls in grades 9-12 north of Boston. Our mission is to educate, enlighten and empower young women to live and to lead exemplary lives.

At APH, students engage with a rigorous curriculum and a supportive community that meets them where they are and emboldens them to excel in their academic and personal goals. Our academic approach focuses on student-centered and interdisciplinary learning that prepares our students to blaze their own paths in college and in life. In and out of the classroom, our young women are given the support and guidance they need to take more intellectual risks and discover how their thoughts, voices, and actions can and will impact the world.

We offer transportation to students from more than 40 communities in Massachusetts and New Hampshire. We invite you to visit us and experience what makes The Academy at Penguin Hall such a unique place to learn, grow, and thrive.
