About Our Facilities
Anna Maria College sits on a beautiful 192-acre campus in Paxton, Massachusetts, which is at the center of New England just minutes from Worcester, MA, and about an hour's drive from Boston, MA, Providence, RI, Hartford, CT, the hills of New Hampshire or the shores of Cape Cod. With a large 350-seat auditorium, state of the art fitness facilities, full dining and residence services, AMC is the perfect place for a retreat, conference or event.

Brief History

Anna Maria College was established by the Sisters of Saint Anne in 1946 as a premiere Catholic institution of higher education for women. Classes were held in the St. Anne Academy High School in Marlborough, MA, until the College outgrew its space and moved to a 192-acre farm in Paxton, MA that the Sisters purchased in 1951. After the move to Paxton, Anna Maria consisted of three buildings: the current Socquet House, which served as the convent; St. Josephs Hall, AMC's Science Building, provided classroom space and a cafeteria; and the barn, now Trinity Hall, provided storage and was later converted to classrooms and dorm rooms.


Today, AMC is a four-year, private, co-ed, Catholic, liberal arts institution that serves over 1600 students, with over 550 living on campus in five residence halls. The College provides quality programs that integrate liberal education and professional preparation committed to the fundamental value of liberal arts and sciences education rooted in the traditions of the Sisters of Saint Anne.
Anna Maria College offers 35 undergraduate degree programs and over 22 graduate and continuing education programs. AMC distinguishes itself through its career-oriented liberal arts education, prominent and responsive faculty, small class sizes, and a variety of co-curricular activities including 17 NCAA Division III sports teams for both men and women.
Committed to a core curriculum that fosters critical and integrated thinking, AMC offers academic excellence with respected faculty and class sizes that range from 4-30 students, with a typical size of 10-15 students, enabling faculty and students to get to know each other personally. Popular majors include art, business, criminal justice, education, English, environmental science, fire science, health science, legal studies, music, nursing, political science, social work, and psychology. AMC also offers an Honors Program with unique study abroad opportunities, as well as special majors, such as art therapy, music therapy and sport management. AMC is also a member of the Colleges of Worcester Consortium, a group of 12 colleges that allows students to cross register at no additional cost.
