About the Boys School
The ANC Boys School was established in 1881 as part of the Academy of the New Church. In 1884 a Girls School was added to create the ANC Secondary Schools. Today, more than one 130 years later, our Boys School continues to provide a structured and caring environment that strives to enhance the civil, moral, and spiritual lives of our students.
At the Boys School we provide more than just a stellar preparatory education. Because we are a New Church school, we focus on religious instruction as well as academics. We challenge every student to behave with integrity, develop their conscience, grow academically, and become courageous and kind leaders at ANC and in life.
Our academic program is tailored specifically to meet the needs of our boys. We offer a careful balance of rigorous single-gender courses and collaborative co-educational courses. Freshmen benefit from a structured schedule of mostly single-gender courses and progress to taking mostly co-educational courses senior year. In every course—single-gender or co-educational—we strive to provide a challenging and caring environment for our boys to succeed academically.
In extracurriculars, our students enjoy a careful balance of single-gender and co-educational offerings. Our competitive athletic programs are tailored specifically for our boys, while our arts offerings and community service club give our boys opportunities to collaborate with the Girls School.
At the Boys School, we provide from all the best aspects of an all boys education—from strong male role models to the distraction-free environment of single-gender classes. And they also receive the advantages of a co-educational school—from shared athletic pride to collaboration in the performing arts.
