Accessible high school in pretty town.
Jun 2021
We stopped here today to see the Academy Library built in 1971 and designed by Luis Kahn. He works in International Modernism and this structure is a bold cube of bricks 111’/side and 80’ tall. We especially wanted to see its dramatic central hall and interior double staircase but a sign outside said the pathways and facilities of the academy were closed due to Covid. We did see the exterior of the 1914-1930 Academy Building, the 1895 Phillips Church and the 1856 Town Hall in this very pretty and accessible historic town.

Museum visit.
Jun 2019
Had always wanted to see the collection at the academy museum, so went went and met a friend. It was also grandparents weekend! Crowded. But the museum is splendid! What a collection, wow. Well worth it, and it's free. Had lunch at the inn on campus and had lunch at the bar which was very good.

Impressive Historic 1781 Georgian Architecture & 1895 Church
Oct 2018
Explore this lovely and impressive historic campus founded in 1781, boasting Georgian-styled architecture and its 1895 school chapel, originally built as Exeter's Second Congregational Church. Well worth a visit.

Nice campus
Jun 2017 • Family
Looks more like a college campus, and has nice architecture. We drove quite a long way to get here to drop our son off at a week-long math workshop that he got a scholarship to attend. My son stayed in the dorms and had a wonderful time--he would like to attend another workshop in the future. It was nice for us to visit this historic school, and getting him here was just the push we needed to see/do some nice things in New Hampshire, Massachusetts and Maine.

Historic great school
May 2017 • Solo
I just visited Exeter on a reunion meeting. From the time I went to Exeter 55 years ago many things have changed. First of all when I went there it was strictly boys only. Today it is coeducational which makes quite a difference from before. All positive. I came to Exeter from Sweden where I was used to boarding schools. However, Exeter was different in a very positive way. In retrospect I would without doubt name Phillips Exeter the absolute finest and best School in America and possible the best in the World. The Harkness teaching system is outstanding in its way of making students understand the greatness of learning.
I spent my best year of school at Exeter.
Absolute great!!

The finest secondary school in America.

Whether you're visiting the campus with a prospective student or just passing by, take the time to visit the library - an architectural wonder - and the other academic buildings on campus. Don't be surprised when students you pass on the paths greet you cheerily - it's sincere. This is an extraordinary place.

I've walked the campus several times, especially in the fall when the trees are a riot of color. The chapel and art museum are very nice, and the architecture and grounds are beautiful. It's one of the best and most historic prep schools in the country.

Town cornerstone.

Have attended musical and dramatic performances and have never been disappointed!
Whether visiting for the history or looking for a child's first class education or a novel souvenir from the campus book store, PEA as we call it is a must see in Exeter!
