Who We Are

Get to know us

Falmouth Academy is an independent, college-preparatory day school serving approximately 215 girls and boys in grades 7 through 12 located at 7 Highfield Drive, Falmouth, MA 02540. Since 1977, we've been educating students from communities across Cape Cod and the Islands, the South Coast and Southeastern Massachusetts, and from overseas as well.

Remarkable teachers lead an innovative academic program that is deep in English, history, science, mathematics, and languages and enhanced by signature offerings including Arts Across the Curriculum, Science in the Real World, and The Fourth Period and its 40-plus electives. Class sizes are intentionally small, ensuring personalized attention and “no back rows.”

Falmouth Academy students become confident, active learners who read closely, listen carefully and think critically. They are scholars and musicians, athletes and artists, budding scientists and aspiring authors who go on to thrive at many of America’s finest colleges and universities.

The school, noted for its sustainable campus, is located on 34 acres of fields and woods, a short walk from historic Falmouth village and a quick drive from Woods Hole and its world-renowned ocean research centers and ferry terminal serving Martha's Vineyard.
