At Cheshire Academy, we educate the whole child: spirit, mind, and body.  The Afternoon Program is one facet of that philosophy, and is as important and inclusive as our academic and residential programs.

We offer a wide variety of programs each season to appeal to our diverse student body. Each and every student is involved in a competitive team two seasons every year,  encouraging students to take pride in contributing to something bigger than themselves. By incorporating the Eight Pillars of Bowden in to our daily language both on and off the fields, it’s our mission to teach life lessons through the afternoon activities that we offer our students.
