The English Department is the hub of critical thinking, cultural conversations, and creative writing at Cheshire Academy. From poetry to prose, from timeless classics to contemporary works, our students find meaning and create connections through the power of ideas and words. Challenging all assumptions, norms and biases, we read diversely, converse deeply, and write passionately.
“Students frequently open my eyes to new interpretations of texts I have studied for years. It’s their curiosity, creativity, and cleverness that make the classroom a lot of fun.”
— English Chair Allison Bass-Riccio
