Program Overview: Open Gates is Worcester Academy’s coordinated approach to experiential learning. It provides a program that integrates real-world experiences with the school’s curriculum. The program brings our students out beyond the campus and the classroom, and brings guests and real-word dimensions in, reinforcing the relevance of the academic experience as well as our connections with the various communities in which we learn and live. Programs and opportunities range from the local to New York City, Washington D.C., Costa Rica, Denmark, Italy, England and China. In short, Open Gates is a major initiative aimed at fulfilling the school’s mission statement: “Worcester Academy exists to instill in its students the desire to learn throughout life, to engage passionately with the world around them, and to be honorable persons of strong and resourceful character.”
