For over 134 years, Hoosac has maintained and upheld Dr. Tibbits’s core beliefs about a well-rounded boarding school experience: to educate the whole student, academically, athletically, socially as well as spiritually. It is Hoosac’s mission to develop enthusiastic learners with creative minds and strong moral compasses who are ready to handle college and life with intelligence and grace. Hoosac is committed to sustaining the small scale preparatory school model in which each student receives an individualized education with attention, care and guidance and is offered the opportunity to grow socially within the Hoosac School community.
Students benefit from a rigorous academic program, experiential off-campus programs, fine and performing arts, championship athletics, and a wide selection of extracurricular activities.
Hoosac held its first Boar’s Head and Yule Log Pageant in 1892. Every year since students work hard to make their production the best yet. But Hoosac’s budding singers and actors have some strong competition from the past — well known actor, the late Burgess Meredith who starred in both the Rocky movies & Batman, played the lead role when he was a student.
