Meridian Academy is a project-based, interdisciplinary secondary school. Our college preparatory program serves students in grades six through twelve from throughout Boston and the surrounding communities. Meridian is for students who want to become experienced problem-solvers with leadership skills; who want to propose and carry out original projects; and who want to understand the connections between the different ideas that they study and the world in which they live. As an independent school, our teachers and students have the freedom to focus on the skills and ideas that support life-long learning. Please contact us to receive news updates by email.

Meridian is settling into our new home!
