Thank you for your interest in Falmouth Academy!

You learn more here than what is in textbooks—things like humanity, benevolence, honesty, good humor—things that make you an effective and productive social being.

Welcome to our website, a good place to start your exploration. Please also take advantage of the many opportunities to visit us. Individual tours, visit days, personal interviews, Open House, Scholarship Exam Morning Program, and sports and performing arts events offer authentic insights as you catch us at our work! You may also follow us on Facebook, Twitter or our blog. These, too, will give you a sense of our busy community and the many happenings in the classrooms, on the playing fields, in performing arts and off-campus internships.

Our students and families come from Duxbury, Marion, Mattapoisett and Plymouth on the South Coast, Martha’s Vineyard by ferry, and all points mid-to-Upper Cape. We offer both transportation and financial aid to serve families of broad geographic and socio-economic range. While our main points of entry for new students are 7th and 9th grades, we invite students into other grades as well, space permitting.

Please call us at (508) 457-9797 to arrange for your visit. Appointments take about an hour and include an individual tour of the school and a personal interview. We look forward to meeting you and introducing you to Falmouth Academy.

Kind regards,

Karen A. Loder
