Founded as a coeducational community school, Cheshire Academy was established as the Episcopal Academy of Connecticut. In the mid-1800s, it became a boys' boarding school and, during the Civil War, adopted a military program. In the early 1900s, it gave up its military program and religious affiliation; renamed the Roxbury School, it then served as a preparatory school for Yale and other comparable institutions. In 1937, the school assumed its present name. It returned to coeducation in 1969. The school offers small classes and supervision of each student's progress, supplemented by one-on-one instruction where advisable. The traditional upper school curriculum includes Advanced Placement and honors courses, as well as programs in the fine arts, technology, study skills and SAT preparation. Since 2010, Cheshire has offered the two-year International Baccalaureate Diploma Program to upperclassmen. Independent study can be arranged by department heads in grades 9-PG, and semester-long study abroad opportunities are also available to qualified pupils. Upper schoolers perform 10 hours of required community service each year.
