Welcome to the Upper School for Boys

Annie Wright Schools opened a new program for high school boys in 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 draws on Annie Wright’s rich traditions while providing inquiry-based and innovative programs. The Upper School for Boys started with Grade 9 and will add a grade each year.

While academic classes are separated by gender, boys and girls have opportunities for intersection, including after-school activities and social events. The program currently utilizes space in our historic building as well as a beautiful, spacious and light-filled downtown space. A new, state-of-the-art academic building for the Upper School for Boys is under construction on our campus and will open in August 2019.

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 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.
