Noted graduates of this school, founded by Rev. Samuel Finley, include colonial leaders Benjamin Rush and Richard Stockton, both signers of the Declaration of Independence. The campus is located on 120 acres of northeastern Maryland countryside. West Nottingham offers a college preparatory curriculum and supports students through its advisor program and individual academic support. A strong sense of community exists in campus life. As a complement to the academic program, the academy offers a well-developed athletic program and makes use of the recreational and cultural resources of the Baltimore/Philadelphia, PA, area. All boys and girls complete 15 hours of required community service prior to graduation. In addition to its traditional program, WNA offers the Chesapeake Learning Center curriculum (available for an additional fee), a regular high school course of studies adapted for students with learning differences who are of average to above-average intelligence. The multisensory CLC Program features smaller classes, a structured study hall and ongoing tutorial assistance. As a third program option, West Nottingham provides a well-developed English as a Second Language curriculum that prepares international students for US colleges. The program, available at beginning, intermediate and advanced levels, also includes instruction in mathematics, science, history and the arts. Participants incur an additional fee.
