Engaging Minds. Building Futures. 

At Salisbury Academy, learning extends far beyond the classroom. Acquiring new knowledge - and applying lessons previously learned in the classroom - in the surrounding world is a key component to the experiential education that we provide for our students. Whether through field study, community service, immersion in the arts, or purely for the sake of thoughtful discovery and adventure, Salisbury Academy students are constantly on the go.
