The Advanced Math & Science Academy Charter School (AMSA) is a seven year, comprehensive public school, educating students in grades 6-12. AMSA opened its doors in 2005 and is located in Marlborough, Mass., about 35 miles west of Boston.
AMSA's goal is to bring quality education, typically available only at exclusive private or exam schools, to an all-inclusive public school setting. AMSA’s teaching model is centered on providing a rigorous college-oriented education for all students, with challenging abstract learning beginning in middle school. We believe that children of diverse backgrounds with a wide range of abilities can achieve a world-class education if given the opportunity to apply themselves diligently.
Admittance to AMSA is based on a space-availability lottery conducted annually in late winter. While preference in admission is given to families from AMSA’s core towns of Clinton, Hudson, Marlborough, and Maynard, students travel to AMSA from more than 30 different communities. (Lottery info is found on the Admissions page.)
