Coe-Brown Northwood Academy, founded in 1867, is a private comprehensive secondary institution offering the highest quality curriculum of studies to the residents of Northwood, Strafford, and surrounding towns. Our educational programs and opportunities are accessible to both traditional and non-traditional learners, responsive to the diverse needs of an ever-changing community, and consistent with state and federal laws supporting the education of our youth.

The campus consists of Pinkham Hall and the main Academy classroom building, Smith Hall, Soper Hall, Wiggin Hall Fine Arts Center, Science building, playing fields and woodlands.

Coe-Brown Northwood Academy is an approved high school and is accredited by the New England Association of Schools and  Colleges.  Students from the surrounding towns are accepted on a tuition basis.

The Academy is chartered by the State of New Hampshire and is governed by a Board of Trustees, which meets on a regular schedule to conduct the educational and business affairs of the school.

The Board of Trustees has made a strong commitment to continually improve our curriculum and co-curricular programs to meet the needs of the individual student. The Academy is accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges, and is certified as an approved high school by the State of New Hampshire, Board of Education.

In order to insure a positive learning environment, the safety and health of our school community is emphasized. There is no place to compromise these issues in our educational atmosphere. The Academy supports that premise by providing each student with a student accident policy as well as offering to parents the option of twenty-four-hour coverage.

We have a traditional philosophy of the student learning environment. Within this philosophy, we do allow and encourage a variety of teaching and learning styles within our learning environment. There are many opportunities available for students to expand upon during their daily education. We do however, expect timely completion of assigned work, consistent attendance and demonstration of humanistic qualities.

We are very proud of our faculty, staff and students at Coe-Brown Northwood Academy. We have a faculty and staff dedicated to the academic and social growth of the individual student. In order to be successful it is necessary that we have a close and positive working relationship. We encourage you to develop a close communication in working with your student’s academics and co-curricular activities.
