The Inside Story

What does it feel like to be a part of the community at Cheshire Academy? The best way to find out is to come to campus and talk to our students.

The second best way is to take a look at this website. We asked a diverse group of students—we won’t say typical Cheshire Academy students, because there is no such thing— to share ideas and feelings about their lives here at the Academy. 

From day students from Connecticut to international students from Germany, from varsity athletes to theater buffs, we asked our students to share their stories. Enjoy the videos, explore the related programs, and get to know us!
