Connecticut Boarding Schools
Avon Old Farms School
Avon Old Farms School

It was Theodate Pope Riddle's lifelong dream to build 'an indestructible school for boys,' which combined the best of Old England with the best of New England. She realized her aim with red sandstone quarried from School grounds and the model of a 16th-century Cotswald village. In the early 1900's, Mrs. Riddle purchased the land for her School -- which was known as the Old Farms properties. Mrs. Riddle began working on her school in 1915 when she had a brush with death on the Lusitania. By 1919, her plans were completed and in 1921 construction of Avon Old Farms School was begun. The school was then founded in 1927 with 40 boys in attendence.
Canterbury School
Canterbury School

Founded in 1915 and still guided by lay Roman Catholics, Canterbury School is a college preparatory, coeducational boarding and day school for students in grades 9-12. The School prides itself on creating a community based on Catholic values, where students and faculty forge lasting bonds and every student experiences a broad and challenging program in a small school setting. The School's educational environment fosters academic rigor, athletic development, artistic enrichment, and spiritual growth.
Cheshire Academy
Cheshire Academy

Cheshire Academy was founded in 1794 as a college preparatory school that would also prepare young men for the ministry. Cheshire Academy's Middle School, for grades 6 through 8, offers day students a comprehensive curriculum, athletic options, and leadership opportunities. While maintaining a program appropriate to the ages of its students, the Middle School is an integral and vibrant part of the life of the whole school community, and students who elect to 'step up' to the Upper School often become community leaders in their high school careers.

The Upper School features both day and boarding programs for students in grades 9 through a postgraduate year.
