Fitchburg’s Applewild School expands initiatives for 2013-14
Friday, July 5, 2013
FITCHBURG, Mass. – Applewild School, in Fitchburg, Mass., announces two initiatives that will be part of the school’s program beginning in September.
The first initiative will be an international program accepting students into grades 6-8. The second is an admissions agreement that will be beneficial to qualified Applewild students who want to continue their secondary education at Cushing Academy in Ashburnham.
Applewild is working with the Boston-based Cambridge Institute of International Education. Applewild will institute an English Language Learning Program, through which grades 6-8 will each have two international students by 2015. International students will be matched with the qualified host families in the area.
Currently, Applewild students come from more than 30 communities in central Massachusetts and southern New Hampshire.
Students who have achieved academic honors and are in good standing at Applewild in seventh grade will gain automatic acceptance to Cushing Academy for grades 9-12, including a 10 percent discount on tuition, assuming they continue that level of performance in eighth grade.
