What is the student experience like at Barnstable? See below to see the diverse options we offer.
Due to our small school environment, students are able to participate in more activities that interest them. We're proud of the number of options our students have. Both inside and outside the classroom students can follow their passions and get a well-rounded school experience, which colleges love.

Three years ago Barnstable Academy applied and was granted
membership into the prestigious National Honor Society. This
Chapter accepts students who meet its rigorous criteria within
the areas of Scholarship, Character, Service, and Leadership.
Since its inaugural year, the Barnstable Academy Chapter has
grown in both distinction and number of applicants. NHS is
known to be a highly competitive and academic organization,
which has incited our students to work harder and participate
in more community service in order to be eligible for
induction. The dedication our NHS students show towards
their education and role in the community has encouraged
them to individually create service projects and participate in a
tutoring program within Barnstable. Due to its success in
motivating our students, this year we have expanded our
Chapter to include the National Junior Honor Society for
eighth graders as well.
The “Blazing Bengal” serves as Barnstable’s student-run
newspaper. Written and created by the students in the
journalism elective, the “Blazing Bengal” offers an
opportunity to share a students’ perspective on current
events as well as school issues and activities. Our
journalism elective encourages students to step into the
role of a reporter, conduct interviews, and construct
articles for the newspaper.
