Welcome to The Governor’s Academy! Whether your family is preparing to join the Governor’s community or returning to Byfield, we are eager to partner with you on this exciting journey.

Students at Governor’s are supported by a dedicated group of teachers, administrators, coaches, dorm parents, and advisors as they explore their interests, find their voice, and achieve great things. Parents and families, you play an important role in this experience, and we encourage you to partner with our faculty and staff to ensure success in our co-curricular program.

The Allies

Our parent association, The Allies, is a significant strength of our community, and we encourage families to become involved. All parents are welcomed and invited to join us throughout the year for meetings and activities.
