At Phillips Exeter Academy, we are committed to integrating sustainability into all aspects of school life. Sustainability is the way we manage our resources so that we take care of the environment, take care of our infrastructure and financial resources, and take care of our people by ensuring that our school is a safe and healthy place to learn that fosters knowledge of and concern for the environment.
We are guided by our Environmental Mission Statement and our Sustainability Master Plan. As our Mission Statement emphasizes, “we must foster a culture of environmental awareness, which should be integral to our community in all venues of daily life, on and off campus—where we learn, where we work, where we live, and where we play.
