The Academic Vision: Cheshire Academy students grow increasingly capable of independently observing, questioning, explaining, interpreting, and analyzing the world. Our academic process begins with what students know and want to know, and develops active learners who reflect on their growth and the implications of their learning.

The Academic Calendar
The academic calendar is organized on a semester system; most students in grades nine to PG take five or six classes each semester. With a rotating schedule, each class meets four times per week for a total of 195 minutes. In addition to the academic schedule, students are required to participate in the afternoon program during each athletic season.
