For 188 years, Worcester Academy students have been living and learning in the city of Worcester, known affectionately as “the 508” (our city area code).

This year, a total of 508 Hilltoppers are studying, living, leading, and playing on the Academy’s historic campus—in the 508. On Founders Day, Feb. 28, join the WA community in striving to meet our goal of 508 gifts, one for every student living and learning in the 508.

Your generosity, and that of other alumni, parents, and friends—has sustained Worcester Academy for 188 years as one of the nation’s leading independent schools. It’s people like YOU who make sure that every one of our 508 students experiences Everyday Excellence—every day— 365 days a year on our famous Hilltop.

When Worcester Academy founders rang our old school bell for the first time in 1834, they had a simple vision: provide an excellent education, day in and day out, and prepare students to tackle the challenges of their day. It’s the generosity of friends like you who have ensured that WA students go on to succeed and to make an honorable impact wherever they go in the world.

Honor YOUR own WA experience by making a gift. In doing so, you make Worcester Academy excellent for our current Hilltoppers—508 middlers, high schoolers, and postgraduates—who are proud to live and learn on the Hilltop in the 508.
