A World Class Alternative
BUILDING ON SUCCESS
A little over 25 years ago, a group of parents envisioned an exceptional school – an inviting place of learning where all students, of all backgrounds would receive the finest education available anywhere.
Our Strategic Goal is to continue to offer each of our students a uniquely challenging, inquiry-based educational experience from age 3 through 18 in the school they love; a school with a campus built to suit their needs, nurturing teaching methodologies guided by powerful Montessori and International Baccalaureate (IB) philosophies.
To achieve this, and to ensure that all our students benefit from the improvements, we are implementing a Whole-School Plan centred on expanding our campus, extending our programmes and developing our teaching staff.
We are appealing for $6 million in donor support to make it happen.

Supporting Somersfield Academy's Capital Campaign is one of the best investments you can make. Every gift, no matter what the size, contributes to a circle of support. The cumulative impact of giving goes beyond the borders of the campus, into the local community and out into the world.
Not only do our students excel academically at the global level, they become dynamic contributors to Bermuda's workforce. Our students embrace diversity and promote social justice, priming them to lead both locally and globally.
