hEAD of school's wELCOME

Putnam Science Academy has a unique history dating back to 1928 and has morphed from a women’s-only Catholic school into a co-educational international boarding school.

As the times have changed, so has our school. Not coincidentally then, Putnam Science Academy has won countless awards for educational and athletic competitions, each time establishing a new standard of excellence.

We are all so very proud of all of the hard work and dedication all of our students bring to the school. The skills they are building and developing as part of this Putnam Science Academy family will be carried with each of them once their time in this community is finished and they move on to the next chapters of their lives.

Developing students who are not only educationally solid but also unique, compassionate, and inspiring individuals is our goal here at Putnam Science Academy.

I encourage you to come to campus, see our students in action – on the field and courts and in the classroom – and experience what makes us such an unique place.

 

Respectfully,

Sarah Healey, Head of School.
