Pinkerton Academy is located in Derry, New Hampshire where it was incorporated in 1814 by Major John Pinkerton and Elder James Pinkerton. It is the largest independent academy in the United States serving 3,400 students as the high school (grades 9 - 12) for the communities of Derry, Hampstead and Chester. The Academy is a private non-profit corporation administered by a Headmaster, who in turn acts under the direction of an elected twelve member Board of Trustees.
The Academy is set on a large New England campus. Since the original four-room Old Academy Building opened in 1815, nine major buildings have been constructed including the new Arts and Humanities Center dedicated in September, 2002. In addition to these major buildings, eight smaller buildings that serve specific needs are scattered around the scenic campus.
The Pinkerton Academy family believes that students need to acquire the skills, values, behaviors, and knowledge that are essential for a successful role in society. Students also need to develop skills, talents, and abilities to pursue their future endeavors and to improve themselves and others. The Pinkerton Academy faculty understands that students learn best through a variety of styles and multiple intelligences.
