Gould is a small, co-ed, independent boarding school where faculty do their best to say ‘yes’ more than they say ‘no,’ where students have flexibility to try new things in new ways. Here, students celebrate each other, take risks, experiment, because we know that education is about the journey, about being in the NOW. We celebrate the creative process, not just the outcomes.
Students thrive in Gould’s college prep setting thanks to close, collegial relationships with their instructors and counselors, and a vast network of alumni and visiting professionals who come to campus and work with students each and every year.
Our mission is to prepare academically motivated students for college and help them to become independent-minded, ethical citizens who will lead lives of purpose, action, excellence, and compassion in a dynamic world.
