The Academy’s Bylaws were first written when the school was chartered in 1792 (when Maine was still part of Massachusetts), and they have been revised many times in the intervening years. The Bylaws call for a formal governing structure known as the Board of Trustees, a self-perpetuating group comprised of committed alumni and friends who are responsible for selecting the Head of School and for assuring the Academy’s institutional health and an ongoing focus on school mission. Trustees serve on a volunteer basis for up to three consecutive four-year terms. The Board may be as large as twenty-two members, with a broad representation of women and men, alumni and community members, and those who live either in Fryeburg or outside the area.
Please read about current Fryeburg Academy trustees below. If you wish to contact the Board, you may do so through the Head of School's Office.
