Maclay School

Maclay is a place to grow and be challenged; to develop character, compassion, respect, and honor.  As a Maclay student, you will not only become a strong learning, but also a purposeful citizen.

Our Mission

Maclay School is an independent, non-sectarian college preparatory school dedicated to providing a liberal arts education and enabling each student to develop their inherent ability to the fullest extent with a balance of discipline and freedom. 

Our Statement of Belonging

At Maclay School, a sense of belonging is central to our mission as an educational institution. Diversity, equity, and inclusion are fundamental to ensuring that each member of our community has an opportunity to thrive, lead others, and be a person of impact. By embracing our differences as a community, our approach to diversity, equity, and inclusion fosters an inclusive, welcoming, supportive, and healthy school culture that promotes genuine respect and acceptance of all members of our community. We are committed to equal opportunity for all persons and do not tolerate discrimination and harassment on any basis.

Our Statement of Community

As a member of the Maclay School community, I will maintain my honor and integrity at all times by creating and upholding an atmosphere of trust, respect, kindness, and consideration for all members of the school and the wider community. All constituencies that make up our community - trustees, administrators, faculty, staff, students, parents, and alumni - should respect, support, defend, cooperate with, speak well of each other and Maclay School, and place the best interests of the institution first.
