Student Life Welcome

Student Life

The WA experience is all about building community and supporting success. It creates a space where you can make friends. It offers services to help you make wise decisions. It has guidelines and accountability that promote success. And, it provides a whole lot of fun to help you make the most of your high school experience.

Alumni are forever telling us that their WA years are some of the happiest moments of their lives. How did that happen? They took advantage of everything the Academy had to offer and they discovered a lot about themselves in the process. We hope you will do the same.

Students find a life full of activities outside of the classroom. There is always something happening on the athletic fields, in the arts, or around the dorms. It could be a formal dinner in the cafeteria, a field trip to the Downeast Institute for Applied Marine Research & Education, a performance by the WA Players, or simply eating Chinese take-out in the dorms. It is about a faculty member who stays late to help you with a problem or a student who sits with you on the bus trip to an away game. It is a great place to be and as Washington Academy students know – it’s great to be a Raider! We hope you will check out all that WA has to offer.
