    Our vision is to prepare a diverse and talented population of young people to participate confidently and responsibly in an increasingly complex society, by providing a rigorous educational experience where thinking is valued, positive attitude is appreciated, and upstanding character is promoted. 

    We seek to develop students who demonstrate self-confidence, enthusiasm for learning, a sense of purpose, and a commitment to service for others, in an environment that is sensitive to the uniqueness of the individual, as well as to the requirements of the world community to which they are becoming contributing citizens.
    Hampstead Academy endeavors to nurture each student's unique strengths - intellectually, socially, physically, and creatively within the framework of a familial atmosphere of civility, competence, and caring. It strives to develop students capable of uniting academic excellence with cooperation, social awareness with responsibility, physical prowess with respect, creativity with dignity.
    While valuing traditions of the past, the school welcomes and implements meaningful change with a curriculum that balances established methods with innovative and forward-thinking programs. Course content and methodology build upon individual uniqueness in learning style, family background, life experiences, and personal intelligence. A confluence of individualized programming and group learning results in the development of the whole child. Cooperative projects, parent involvement, and community service afford opportunities for students to share their learning experiences via the development of an outer-directed sensitivity to other peoples and cultures.
