Springfield Commonwealth Academy’s (SCA) campus was built in 1890. The school teaching building, sports facilities and other buildings were designed by the Frederick Law Olmsted family (the family has designed Central Park in New York and other world-renowned buildings). The buildings are simple and elegant. The school sits on top of a hill which looks over the nearby downtown Springfield area. The environment is both quiet and beautiful.
SCA has a strong academic atmosphere, ranking among the top 20 boarding schools in the United States, and has received international students from China since 2018. SCA is a private boarding school that can provide a well-rounded and complete education all the way from kindergarten to grade 12 and post-graduate (PG). The campus is located in Springfield, the second largest city in the state of Massachusetts, the US state known best for its high-quality education. The school covers an area of 19.7 acres (about 120 mu). The campus is comprised of 15 above-ground buildings including teaching buildings, indoor sports facility, library, dining hall, student dormitories and apartments, theater and more.
SCA is a member of the New England Association of Schools & Colleges (NEASC) and is accredited by the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS). In addition, SCA is a member of the National Honor Society (NHS) and the New England Preparatory School Athletic Council (NEPSAC).
