YOU BELONG HERE.


Loves being Head of School. Loves inspiring academic excellence at one of the oldest private high schools in the country.


OUR DIVERSITY IS YOUR OPPORTUNITY Head of School Message I’m so pleased that you’re interested in discovering—or re-discovering— Fryeburg Academy. Here you will get a sense of our broad, challenging, and creative academic program, vibrant extracurricular offerings in the arts, athletics, and numerous student clubs, as well as the beautiful campus and facilities where we learn, teach, play, perform, and grow. One of the oldest private high schools in the United States and now well into its third century, FA enrolls, fosters, and celebrates young men and women of truly diverse backgrounds, both local and global. The socioeconomic, geographic, and cultural blend of our student body and faculty is extraordinary, as is the array of individual members’ talents and interests. Though no school can be all things to all people, few others offer the breadth of learning opportunities available at Fryeburg Academy. I hope that you will visit campus and experience the special energy of our school world. My best,

Erin P. Mayo, Head of School

Let your dramatic side shine on stage at the state-of-the-art Leura Hill Eastman Performing Arts Center (which happens to be this building right here).

Craving academic challenge? We can help with that. In fact, we offer Introduction to Organic Chemistry. Taking a college-level class while you are still in high school: That’s what we call “college prep”.

With over five major ski mountains located within an hour drive of Fryeburg, you can ski and shred all winter long. Meet Saco, the 80-footlong Chinese dragon who makes an appearance at many FA events, and the students who have the opportunity to work with him as his puppeteers.

Photography is just one of the many visual arts pursuits you can explore at Fryeburg Academy. Whether you have Division I aspirations or you are new to a sport, you will find a place (on the field, the court, the slopes, or the course) as a Fryeburg Academy Raider.

WHO WILL YOU BECOME?

Wait, there’s welding at Fryeburg Academy? There sure is. The woodworking and machine fabrication technology in our technical arts building puts the ‘maker’ in makerspace.

That’s a wrap! An average of 40 student-made films are produced each year using the latest professional production and editing equipment in our Media Center and Film Studio.

Fryeburg Academy provides you with the opportunity to pursue your passions (or discover new ones).

Be you.

EXPERIENCE THE BEST OF ALL WORLDS In a time when specialization is the norm, we believe that adolescents who have the opportunity to explore a variety of activities are better able to develop a deeper, more genuine sense of their own interests (some of which become fulfilling careers). Through intentional scheduling, we limit overlap of afternoon activities so that students don’t have to choose between being an athlete or an artist; between community service or chorus; between rock band or rock climbing. At Fryeburg Academy students can simply be themselves. If you crave opportunity without compromise, then Fryeburg Academy is exactly where you need to be.

Because what you love matters.
