Fryeburg Academy

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. Therefore, we strive to create a supportive school environment that promotes respect, tolerance, and cooperation, and prepares students for responsible citizenship. Within this context, the Academy’s 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 of real people, 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. The magnificent natural surroundings encompass a region rich in culture and entertainment, thanks to thriving local resort towns like North Conway. Also, we are only an hour from Portland, the largest city in Maine, and less than three hours from Boston. Living here provides real learning about people from around the globe and from our very own place in the world. With a boarding population of 150 set in a larger school setting, Fryeburg Academy provides a close-knit family environment while offering the curricular and extracurricular opportunities that can only be found at a larger school. Fryeburg Academy is a truly diverse school with students from around the world and from many different backgrounds. You’ll find encouragement and support in and out of the classroom. We serve students of all academic abilities with 18 AP courses, ESOL classes, our Language Retraining Program, Special Services Department, Honors classes, as well as technical offerings.
