An independent high school founded in 1823 on the principle that knowledge is power, Foxcroft Academy is committed to providing students from central Maine and beyond a rigorous college and career preparatory academic curriculum designed to produce informed and active global citizens.
A pioneer in the State of Maine in both the adoption of a standards-based curriculum and grading system as well as moving 1:1 with an iPad initiative, Foxcroft Academy strives to articulate clearly the rigorous learning standards that we expect all students to meet and to provide students with a rich set of tools to achieve success. The Academys required combination of course credits, learning standards, and community service is designed to instill in our students the knowledge, skills, and habits of mind that will best ensure their development as valued and valuable global citizens in the 21st century.
Through the process of adopting and developing our standards-based program, we have learned that the de-mystification of our educational process places increased responsibility on our students, with the help of their parents, teachers, and administrators, to plan early and with great care the particular path that they will navigate in order to earn their Foxcroft Academy diploma. Our courageous mission to provide a comprehensive array of opportunities for our students demands active involvement and thoughtful choices from all members of our community. We strongly encourage you to ask us questions along the way, and are happy to answer them in person, over the phone, by letter, or via e-mail. We hope that the educational experience at Foxcroft Academy will be but a prelude to life-long learning, fulfillment, and success.
