Phillips Exeter Academy is a prestigious independent school established in 1781 and located in Exeter, New Hampshire. Also known as PEA or just Exeter, the school was named after its founder John Phillips. Although primarily known as a co-ed boarding school, it does host a small number of day students.

It is pretty much the archetype for prep schools in the States. If the story is about an upper-class boarding school in the States, it most likely draws on the ways of life at Exeter.
