Meridian Academy's Full Profile



Meridian Academy says

Meridian Academy is a project-based, secondary school that serves students in grades six through twelve from throughout Boston and the surrounding communities. By carrying out long-term original projects, Meridian students become experienced problem solvers, questioners, and community members. As an independent school, our teachers and studnets have the freedom to focus on the skills and ideas that support life-long learning.


Meridian students engage in long-term projects as a way to both master the core information and skills associated with a subject as well as to understand how to apply those understandings in new and unfamiliar contexts. Original research, writing, and the arts are strands that are integrated across our three core domains: the Humanities; Mathematics, Science, and Technology; and World Languages. In their junior year, all students propose and carry out a year-long original investigation.

Mission Statement

Meridian Academy mentors students in a small, vibrant community to become creative, questioning, analytical learners and thoughtful, involved citizens. Our curriculum incorporates the best practices from both progressive and traditional schooling, encouraging students to embrace the joys and challenges of lifelong discovery. Students develop integrity, perseverance, compassion, courage, and a passion for learning and creating that they take with them to other places and stages of life.



Private schools, including parochial and boarding, are funded through tuition and fees. The cost varies from school to school, but most families pay tuition to attend them. Many private schools offer financial aid or discounts, so it's worthwhile to ask about these options.
