Campus Amenities

The Academy offers a host of on-campus amenities.


Our participants have access to the Academy’s Field House, which boasts an indoor swimming pool, basketball courts, and weight and fitness rooms. Behind the Field House, participants have full access to the Academy’s outdoor track (although there a number of great local runs that we are happy to point out). Behind Waterman Hall are tennis courts for the participants’ use, and our recreation director often uses Stowe Green for badminton and volleyball.


Additionally, participants can begin their day with a morning walk through campus and town.


The Academy’s Library is open from 7:00 in the morning until 10:00 in the evening, and offers participants a place to collaborate with peers, conduct research, or simply relax. There is wireless access in the library and throughout the entire Academy campus.
