Please help us achieve our objectives to create and grow a world-class school.

Our Phase 2 campaign is providing funding for the construction and build-out of important remaining components for all students. These include:

Fifteen Classrooms in a Middle School Wing

Sussex Academy’s 330 middle school students will congregate in a new educational wing, separate from the high school.  Classroom design will maximize natural lighting and feature the technology required in a state-of-the-art learning environment.



Information Commons/Library

More than a storehouse for books, the new Information Commons/Library serves as a creative intersection for both print and digital information. Access to professional databases, remote servers, a three-dimensional printer and the ability to create multi-media presentations are a few of the forward-looking components of this exciting new learning area.

A Large Auditorium/Cafeteria

The new auditorium-cafeteria at Sussex Academy provides one of the largest indoor seating venues in Sussex County, Delaware. Meals are provided by the school through an outside vendor service.



A Professional Performing Arts Stage

Envision top-quality orchestras, stage plays and other performers from the Mid-Atlantic interacting with students in exciting and creative ways. The new performing arts stage at Sussex Academy integrates education with performance in dynamic and stimulating ways.

Athletic Fields

While challenging academics will always be at the core of the Sussex Academy experience, our expansion is providing a robust offering of varsity, JV and middle school sports. Five new fields have been added for lacrosse, field hockey and softball, in addition to the school’s existing world-class gymnasium. Two of the new fields feature synthetic turf and lights for night-time play. Tennis courts, a track, baseball field and another practice area will be added as soon as practical.
