Upper School for Boys
Annie Wright Schools are excited to announce a new program for high school boys beginning in the fall of 2017. Based on the exceptional academic program of Annie Wright's Upper School for Girls but designed as a separate and unique experience, the Upper School for Boys will draw on Annie Wright’s rich traditions while providing inquiry-based and innovative programs. The Upper School for Boys will start with Grade 9 in the 2017-18 school year and will add a grade each year.

While academic classes will be separated by gender, boys and girls will have opportunities for intersection, including arts activities and social events. The program will start in thoughtfully refurbished classrooms, lounges and dorm rooms in our current building and in their own off-campus annex to provide a sense of belonging to both the entire Annie Wright community and their own all-boys’ cohort. Plans are in place for a new academic building for the Upper School for Boys on our current campus by 2019. Learn more about these plans in our building FAQ.

Come learn about the opportunity for your son to be a pioneer of this new program, which offers the best of both worlds with single-gender academics on a mixed gender campus. The first classes will have the unique opportunity, through a specially designed course in architecture and design, to immerse themselves in real world problem-solving and help shape the Upper School for Boys’ facilities, program and traditions for decades to come.
