Kimball Union Academy is a private boarding school located in New Hampshire. Founded in 1813, it is the 22nd oldest boarding school in the United States.[1] The academy's mission is to "prepare students for the challenges of tomorrow’s world by inspiring academic mastery, creativity, responsibility, and leadership."[2] It is located in the upper Connecticut River Valley village of Meriden, New Hampshire.

The academy's 1,300-acre (5.3 km2) village campus is 2½ hours via major highways from Boston, Massachusetts, and Hartford, Connecticut. Nearby bus, train, and plane terminals link the area directly with Boston, New York City, and Manchester, New Hampshire. The academy is governed by a 21-member board of trustees.
