The State Legislature of Massachusetts founded the Mass Academy in 1992 as a public school to serve academically advanced youth in grades eleven and twelve in math, science, and technology. To ensure a balanced curriculum, we developed an equally rigorous preparation in the humanities and world languages. The result is a junior-year program that is rich in project-based assignments, technology, teamwork, and inquiry learning, and a senior year program that is the same as the freshmen year at Worcester Polytechnic Institute. Overall, small size -- about 100 students -- and high expectations create a community that is serious yet informal, demanding while supportive.
