Academics at Salem Academy
Learning is Different Here
Emma Grimstead A’22 noticed it during her campus tour. It was the tiniest of details, yet it told her all she needed to know:
“I visited a class and saw students talking while working. That wasn’t allowed in my public school! It showed me that the teachers at Salem trust students and that the students take the work seriously. It was a beautiful thing!”
Emma’s mind was instantly set: “I chose Salem Academy because I wanted that type of freedom and trust.”

“There’s no competition here between students. Everyone wants to lift each other up because we want each other to succeed. At the award ceremony at the end of the year, we go crazy cheering for each other.”
