Parents and Families Association

Greetings Cheshire Academy family members!


My name is Kerry Auld, mother to Angus ’21 and Euan ’24, and Association president. Whether you are a long time Cheshire Academy parent or family member, are new to the school, or you are considering the Academy for your child, it is my pleasure to welcome you to our wonderful community.


My husband, Christopher, and I chose Cheshire Academy for our children due to its robust academic, athletic, and extracurricular programs, our family history with the school, and because it is the only boarding school in Connecticut to offer the International Baccalaureate® Diploma Programme. We have found that the Academy is a rare combination of a school that develops confident and independent critical thinkers, while still providing an extremely supportive and nurturing environment.


We, the parents and families of Cheshire Academy, play a vital role in the success of the Academy. We continue to work closely with the leadership of the Academy to identify areas in which we can have a major and direct impact on our community, our programs, and the overall experience of our children. Please consider becoming a volunteer and working with me in one or more of the many exciting capacities available to you this year. I can be reached via the Association’s email address: ParentsAssociation@cheshireacademy.org, or via telephone at 203-892-9897 with any questions you may have.


Please take this quick Parent and Families Volunteer Survey to let us know your interests.


I look forward to hearing from you, and hope to meet you soon!



Kerry Auld P’21, ‘24
