A Chance to Explore
In 2010, we began offering a May Term- a three-week term scheduled at the end of the school year in which students choose from a variety of courses, many of which are experiential or interdisciplinary in nature. This term has become Fryeburg Academy’s equivalent of Google’s “20 percent time.” It is an authentic opportunity for teachers to offer new courses and a chance for students to gain exposure to topics they do not have a chance to study during the other semesters. We offer more than 80 additional offerings during this term where students gain exposure to topics they do not have a chance to study during the other semesters. Activities include extended off-campus trips, community service projects, construction, cooking, dance, robotics, agriculture, archeological digs, and more.
