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.
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 person’s future.
The offices of The Academic Dean and of Guidance work with parents, advisors, and teachers to aid the student in making these crucial decisions, but all actual course requests should be routed through the office of the Academic Dean. Planning conferences are held by appointment. Please call 207-935-2001 ext 3120.
