Salisbury Academy, a Green Ribbon School


The U.S. Department of Education announced in the spring of 2024 that Salisbury Academy is among the 2024 U.S. Department of Education Green Ribbon Schools award honorees. 

At the state level, Salisbury Academy was nominated by the N.C. Department of Public Instruction for that distinction.   

“Connecting students with nature and empowering them to discover their own potential for positive environmental impact and change is a cornerstone of our culture at Salisbury Academy,” said Beverly Fowler, head of school.  

This empowerment, she said, happens through environmental curriculum across all grade levels; time outdoors in harmony with nature; a strong partnership with Catawba College and their Environment and Sustainability department; sustainability-focused field experiences, labs, lessons, and guest speakers; environmental stewardship; and an ongoing objective to reduce the school’s footprint.

Salisbury Academy's Sustainability Coordinator Internship program has been running for 5 successful, sustainability-inspired years! 

Over the course of the school year, interns lead classroom discussions and presentations on environmental topics, write articles for the school newsletter, speak at a Green Chapel, and lead an Eco-Warriors after school club.

Salisbury Academy is honored to be one of just two Green Schools of Excellence in North Carolina and the first school in history to achieve the recognition twice.
