Founded in 1744, West Nottingham Academy is the oldest boarding school in the United States. The school’s ideal location places students within driving distance to the Atlantic coast, New York City, and Washington, D.C. Students participate in experiential, project- based learning.

West Nottingham’s facilities, located on 100 acres near the Atlantic Ocean, include a student center, a science center, sports fields, and an amphitheater. The school’s brand new Innovation Center features 3D printers, HP computers, podcasting equipment, virtual reality technology, and green screen technology.

All students participate in three seasons each year of competitive or recreational athletics. Options include badminton, soccer, cheerleading, and more.
West Nottingham’s artist-in-residence collaboration with the New York Academy of Art allows students to be taught by professional graduated artists who reside and teach on campus.

Students live in one of four residence halls. Each dormitory is fully equipped with air conditioning, flat-screen televisions, lounges, laundry, kitchenettes, and internet.
