Welcome to Fryeburg Academy

As you take your first steps onto our campus, you will experience a remarkable sense of belonging and a unique atmosphere that is distinctly Fryeburg Academy. Our community comprises a diverse group of educators and learners from local town schools and different parts of the world. This diversity enriches our community and makes it stronger. Here, we value differences and believe they are essential for growth and development. 

We encourage our students to learn from each other's backgrounds and experiences, which helps them expand their perspectives, enrich their knowledge, and build a more inclusive community. Our teachers are dedicated to fostering a culture of learning and growth, and they work tirelessly to help our students achieve their full potential. 

At Fryeburg Academy, we believe that education is more than just academics. We emphasize the importance of personal development, self-improvement, and building strong relationships. Our students develop their character, leadership skills, and sense of responsibility, which prepares them to become active and engaged members of society.  We welcome you to join us and experience our community's unique and transformative experience.
