Wentworth Military Academy

Wentworth Military Academy & College was founded in 1880 initially as Hobson’s Select School for Boys. A year later, the school became Wentworth Male Academy when the school’s benefactor, Stephen G. Wentworth, purchased the school and re-named it in memory of his recently deceased son, William. Its purpose was to prepare its graduates for college and professional life. That mission remains unchanged after 125 years and now applies to young women as well as men.
