Meridian Academy is a diverse, investigation-based, secondary school that serves students in grades six through twelve. Our families come from Boston and the surrounding communities.
By carrying out long-term original projects, Meridian students become experienced problem solvers, nuanced questioners, and engaged community members. Meridian's classes are interdisciplinary and active -- students don't just learn about each subject, they become members of the disciplines: junior historians, mathematicians, writers, artists, scientists, and more.
Students head to college as sophisticated writers, learners, and researchers ready to engage with their classmates and professors at a high level. Joining our intentionally small and informal community, Meridian students get to be known well and to contribute to the life of the school in powerful ways developing leadership skills. Meridian students learn deeply, because classes are varied and engaging and because their questions and ideas influence the directions of their classes.
