Employer Description
 
Meridian Academy is an urban, project-based, interdisciplinary secondary school. Located in the Boston neighborhood of Jamaica Plain, Meridian serves a racially and economically diverse student body. As an intentionally small school, Meridian's students participate fully in the life of the school and helping to guide its direction and the faculty make decisions about curriculum and school life democratically. 70% of Meridian students come from the neighborhoods of Boston and two-thirds come from public elementary and middle schools. 50% of our families received reduced tuition that matches their finances and 24% have a tuition that is less than a fifth of the maximum.

Diversity Mission Statement
 
Meridian Academy mentors a diverse group of students to pose and investigate original questions, apply their learning, act with integrity and perseverance, work collaboratively and independently, and communicate clearly and creatively. Our students foster community, take on leadership roles, and find delight and wonder in a life of learning. Meridian students, faculty, and families must reflect a diversity of backgrounds, beliefs, and identities in order for all members of the school to thrive, and for the school to serve the broader community. Meridian’s commitment to equity is foundational to all of our values and actions, including many aspects of our design that specifically support economic accessibility.
