Why FA?

Now in our 225th year, we know we have something special.


225 years ago, the Academy was founded by the people of Fryeburg, who recognized that “good education is the greatest importance to Society”.  Students from across the U.S. and throughout the world have the unique opportunity to be a part of this close-knit community that will come to know them as an individual; celebrating their accomplishments and recognizing that young people must pursue different goals in their own way.


Academically, Fryeburg Academy will work with each student to create a personalized academic schedule that is the best fit for them.  We serve students of all academic abilities with over 21 AP courses and Advanced Curriculum, ESOL classes offered in multiple disciplines, individualized Academic Learning Support program and over 100 additional academic courses. 


Whether it be through the encouragement of the faculty and staff here or with their peers, our goal is to make the students experience here one they will not soon forget! You hear it in the variety of languages spoken on campus. You see it in the diversity of our student body. You feel it as you walk down the street.  It is our belief that when a student feels comfortable within their community, they will grow and challenge themselves to try new experiences.


Mount Washington Valley is one of the most popular vacation destinations in the United States. With an abundance of outdoor opportunities such as hiking, mountain biking, skiing, snowboarding, camping, kayaking, and fishing, the area of Fryeburg offers four seasons of outdoor adventure. The 750,000 acres of the White Mountain National Forest offers more opportunities to recreate than any other New England destination.

We invite you to experience the magic we live every day.

"Fryeburg may be a small town compared to the city, but for the past year I have been here, I  have felt that I am more surrounded by people than I ever was in the city."
