Thank you for visiting our website; I’m so pleased that you’re interested in discovering—or re-discovering— Fryeburg Academy. Here you will get a sense of our broad, challenging, and creative academic program, vibrant extracurricular offerings in the arts, athletics, and numerous student clubs, as well as the beautiful campus and facilities where we learn, teach, play, perform, and grow.
One of the oldest private high schools in the United States and now well into its third century, FA enrolls, fosters, and celebrates young men and women of truly diverse backgrounds, both local and global. The socioeconomic, geographic, and cultural blend of our student body and faculty is extraordinary, as is the array of individual members’ talents and interests. Though no school can be all things to all people, few others offer the breadth of learning opportunities available at Fryeburg Academy.
What perhaps will not be as visible as you browse the website are the individual relationships and the community embrace that characterize the Academy experience. Generations of FA alumni describe the warm, personal interest in them demonstrated by teachers here, and the balance between challenge and support that our teachers achieve. A passionate belief in school mission and deep optimism in youth unite Academy faculty and staff, making this a place of connection and empowerment.
I hope you will visit campus and experience the special energy of our school world, now in its 230th year!
