Students Information for Sussex Academy - Sussex Academy of Arts and Sciences


Students Information

The students of the Sussex Academy are involved in a great deal of activities throughout the school day. Each day, the homeroom period includes a student-led morning meeting- a time for students to share thoughts, activities, and inspirational readings with one another to help foster a sense of community and develop connections among the students. Each week the students attend specials classes in addition to their regular academics to learn more about computer use, music, art, Spanish, health, and physical fitness. Band, chorus, and drama programs are also available to Sussex Academy students in addition to eighteen clubs sponsored by the staff of the school.

Our after-school program offers both intramural and interscholastic sports as well as opportunities for students to participate in academic support and enrichment activities.
