Our Campus

Phillips Exeter Academy is located in Exeter, a southern New Hampshire town settled by European colonists nearly 400 years ago.

The Academy campus, set in the town's village, is divided by the three principal streets of the community, creating a walkable atmosphere. Dormitories and dining halls are easily accessible from classrooms and other facilities like the student center, library, art gallery, theater, and athletic buildings and fields. Downtown stores and restaurants, as well as a riverside pathway, are just off campus.
