Phillips Exeter Academy is a coeducational independent school for boarding and day students in grades 9 though 12, and offers a postgraduate program.
Attended over 50 years ago. Nothing like it. Our country needs more institutions of this caliber.
Outstanding. I can't start a review because it will be too long. The opportunity of a lifetime for my son. Just attended his 10th year reunion and I enjoyed hearing the excitement in his voice when he spoke about reconnecting with old friends and teachers. He's grown up to be an incredible man and good humanitarian and it's all because of the his PEA education. Proud Parent '07
