Employer Description
 
ABOUT:

Since 1794, Cheshire Academy has practiced inclusion for our student body and faculty appointments. One of the only schools to welcome Jewish students during the second World War, Cheshire Academy was also founded as a co-educational school 226 years ago. The Academy welcomed international students as early as the 1850s, and boasted of a high Cuban population in the late 1900s during the industrial shipping era. Now, Cheshire Academy continues a tradition of inclusion by welcoming LGBTQ students and faculty with our student-led LGBTQ group and our participation in awareness programs like Day of Silence and Diversity-themed Community Weekend.
