Our cooks have several decades of combined restaurant experience and make excellent use of Scattergood Farm's certified organic vegetable fields and fruit orchards and grass-pastured beef, lamb, pork and turkey. Our farm provides the majority of students' delicious meals and we bake our own bread. Eating fresh, local and seasonal isn't new. It's been our practice for nearly 125 years.
Every member of Scattergood's Class of 2014 has been accepted to four-year colleges and universities, including Brandeis, Bryn Mawr, Earlham, Macalester, Mt. Holyoke, Oberlin, Reed, Scripps, University of Iowa and more!

Alumni Reviews Review School
- Review Description
- Earlham College I think that the most obvious unique thing about Scattergood is the student body size. In my experience, having such a small community was something that most people (staff and students) found simultaneously very frustrating. . .

"Do you like large schools or small schools? Are you most comfortable in a city, small town or countryside? Are you interested in attending a school that has a religious or military orientation? Would you like to attend a school that is only for boys or girls? These are some questions you must ask yourself before you begin your search for the right U.S. boarding school for you..."
