Bacon Academy

611 Norwich Avenue
Colchester, CT 06415

Bacon Academy first opened in 1803 with $40,000 donated by Pierpont Bacon. What is now known as the "old" Bacon Academy building served as Colchester's high school until the mid-1950s, when the classes were transferred to what has now become the Colchester Intermediate School building. In September of 1993, the construction of the current Bacon Academy building, budgeted at nearly $25 million, was finally completed. There are currently almost 1000 students enrolled at Bacon Academy. With Colchester facing important decisions in terms of new growth vs. historical significance, the faculty and students at Bacon Academy remain committed to meeting the challenges presented by the new information age
