Haverleigh Preparatory Academy for the Gifted was opened thanks to an endowment by Gilbert Haverleigh in 1822. Since then, it has been home to some of the greatest minds of every generation. Genius has passed through our halls many times, and we are proud to have helped them along their way.
Haverleigh prides itself on providing the best education possible for each and every student, giving personalized attention where needed and helping. Graduates of Haverleigh attend colleges such as Harvard, Dartmouth, Columbia, Brown, and Yale. Because of this, we find that our students are well-prepared for the life ahead of them – no matter where they excel. Thanks to Haverleigh, students can do their best in all parts of life.

HAUNTED HAVERLEIGH: FACT OR FICTION
by Amanda Day-Jones
Many of you may have heard of Haverleigh's haunting residents, but most could not have claimed an encounter with them - until now. Recently, supernatural sightings have spiked. An anonymous witness agreed to share some information.
AMANDA DAY-JONES: So, could you please tell use about, like, what you've seen around here?
ANONYMOUS: Last night, I looked out my dorm window, and I saw some people - seven, maybe? - in black cloaks, standing out there. I was trying to get some fresh air, but it scared the **** out of me.
ADJ: Do you think maybe this could have anything to do with that old Haverleigh legend about the Seven Anointed Ones?
A: I don't know, but whatever it was, it freaked me out. I could swear that one looked at me - and pointed. There was something glinting in its hand. I ****ing thought it was a knife. I haven't slept in two nights. My roommate thinks I'm crazy.
ADJ: Are you?
A: [laughs] God, no. Maybe all this studying is getting to me.
ADJ: Maybe...or maybe not. Thank you on behalf of the Green and Gold!

For the most part, Haverleigh Prep, as its students fondly call it, has an untarnished reputation. That is, until the 1930s. Back then, there were superstitions abounding, and so when people started reporting this cloak-and-dagger group, no one took it too seriously. However, ten days later, the body of Laura Mather was found in the well where one witness claimed to have seen the group.
Known only for their late-night chanting sessions (claimed by many to seem demonic), these people were known as the Seven Anointed Ones. The name was made up by a sensationalistic newspaper, and in all likelihood, they never existed.
