Welcome from the Headmaster

Welcome from the Headmaster

If you are visiting this website, you and your family are likely a few steps closer in making a major decision on where your child or children might continue the next steps of their educational journey. Choosing a school is also one of the most important investments you will ever make, and I hope that I can play some role in providing insights on the unique aspects of Southampton Academy.

There is no question that the academic, athletic, and civic achievements of our students are inspiring. Yet there is another side to the SA experience that is profoundly human and real. We are a family of students, teachers, parents, alumni, grandparents and friends who share a unique bond that transcends description. I know this beyond my own leadership voice, because now three of my children enjoy that same privilege. Along with thousands of others my wife and I can say with the greatest conviction that we love Southampton Academy.

I invite you to learn more about us not only through our website, but with a personal visit to our campus, set in a safe and lovely residential setting. See for yourself how students and faculty interact with one another. Watch a play rehearsal or musical recital, cheer on our Raider coaches and athletes, or join others in our outdoor classroom and playground areas on one of the most unique and welcoming settings you’ll find anywhere. I am certain that you will discover that SA is a truly special place.

We live in unique and challenging times. As students pursue personal success, the importance of a great and diversified education has never been more obvious or more necessary. If you want your child to find the best in themselves, fulfill their dreams, and apply their talents to make a positive difference in the world – then you have indeed found your school.

We look forward to meeting you soon on our campus.
