Students’ matriculation records

Originally, Exeter was effectively a preparatory school for Harvard, much as its archrival Phillips Academy was seen as a Yale feeder school. Today Exonians matriculate to many top universities across America and abroad. Averaged over many years, more Exeter students go to Harvard than to any other single college or university, but the number matriculating to Harvard in a single year is not always the highest.For more recent records, members of the classes of 2010–2012 most frequently enrolled at HarvardColumbiaYaleTuftsPrinceton, and Dartmouth.

Student Life 

Exeter students benefit from a rich academic and social life. Students can choose from many co-curricular activities including athletics, arts, performance, social responsibility, environmental concerns, and more. The 90 clubs provide students with many outlets to express existing interests and develop new ones. Developing interests -  both new and well established -  is a key goal of an Exeter education.

Note: Coeducation - The Academy became coeducational in 1970 when 39 girls began attending.Today the student body is roughly half boys and half girls. In 1996, to reflect the Academy's coeducational status, a new gender-inclusive Latin inscription Hic Quaerite Pueri Puellaeque Virtutem et Scientiam ("Here, boys and girls, seek goodness and knowledge") was added over the main entrance to the Academy Building. This new inscription augments the original one – Huc Venite, Pueri, ut Viri Sitis ("Come hither boys so that ye may become men").
