The MacDuffie School provides a quality co-ed private school education to local and international students who are bright, talented, and interested in attending college or university. These students experience a culture and a community at MacDuffie that is both challenging and supportive–a community that encourages students to explore their interests and to discover new possibilities. We provide the environment and curriculum for students to improve their language skills, explore leadership opportunities, and successfully build the academic and professional skills necessary for success. MacDuffie is accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC).
MacDuffie is also a welcoming community. This year (2021-2022), we have students from 20 nations as well as from throughout the US. Our international students live on campus. At the end of the school day, our students participate in the Co-Curricular Activities Program (CAP), which includes athletics and a variety of special offerings such as chess, cooking, and dancing. On the weekend, students are offered recreational as well as educational activities. In addition, boarders take several longer trips to such places as Washington, D.C., Vermont, and Boston. Homestay students learn about American culture by living with a local family and participating in activities with their hosts.
Our school location is ideal for the international student. Located in Western Massachusetts on 254 acres of undeveloped New England greenery, we have easy access to both Boston to the east and New York City to the south.
