Fryeburg Academy is an independent secondary school that serves a widely diverse population of local day students and boarding students from across the nation and around the world. The Academy believes that a strong school community provides the best conditions for learning and growth.
At Fryeburg Academy, we strive to create a supportive school environment that promotes respect, tolerance, and cooperation, and prepares students for responsible citizenship. Within this context, the Academys challenging and comprehensive academic program, enriched by a varied co-curriculum, provides the knowledge and skills necessary for success in higher education and the workplace. Fryeburg Academy is set in a classic New England village, in the foothills of the White Mountains. It is a community offering a sense of belonging to all who come, and a backbone of support to all. It is close to the ocean, rivers, lakes and 800,000 acres of White Mountain National Forest, so outdoor activities are limitless, every season of the year.
In order that students might better identify and follow a pathway to post-secondary study, the Academy has identified standards which prepare students for higher education. When we work with students in the process of course selection, we seek to aid them in developing an educational goal and then in selecting the proper pathway to that destination. This is one of the most serious decision making processes a young man or woman is asked to undergo, for it strongly impacts upon that persons future.
