So grateful to Coach Jamie Sullivan, Coach Dan and Coach Adu for all their work with the basketball team. It has been an amazing experience for our son to play on Rowe court and enjoy all the benefits of your experience and leadership. We appreciate you looking after both the logistics like driving all over New England and the substantive like winning the NEPSAC AA 2021-2022. We are also grateful to the kitchen staff and head chef who make great food day after day, to Mrs. Carter in the mail room and the gardeners who make the grounds of WA such a beautiful environment.

In honor of Coach Jamie Sullivan
The Worcester Academy experience has been one of the most impactful, memorable and valuable experiences of both our children's lives. The Academics and Athletics speak for themselves, but more importantly, it is the people who make this such a special place. From the Headmaster ans his wife who have adopted every one of these students as their own and make them feel genuinely valued, to the teachers, coaches, support staff, trainers, maintenance crew and security guards. EVERY SINGLE PERSON is valued in such an authentic way. We are so grateful for the impact that this community has had on our family and will be forever proud to be a part of such a special place. Thank you Worcester Academy

WA has been home for almost 4 years. My students are the best and I know some of them need a little of economic help. My mother and father did a lot pro-bono during their lives. I want to give them some credit for what they did. They believe that quality education is one of the most important things to maintain a healthy society.
