Become a Part of Something Special  

At Fryeburg Academy, students get more than just an education. They become a part of a vibrant and welcoming community that provides a sense of belonging, home, and support. Through meaningful relationships with peers and faculty members, they learn to appreciate and respect diversity in all its forms. 

This strong sense of community extends beyond the Academy's campus into the village and surrounding towns where many day students live. Here, students find open doors and warm welcomes from families who invite them to share their homes and traditions during weekends and vacations. Even those who live nearby but not in the dorms are drawn to campus for academic and research resources, meals at the dining hall, or just catching up with friends at the student union. 

We take pride in fostering a community that truly cares for one another. Join us and become a part of something special!
