About Us

We're proud to be one of Maine's oldest and most uniquely forward-thinking high schools.

From our early days of bringing higher education to the state's pioneer families to our present-day Apple Distinguished School honors, and our designation as an International Baccalaureate Program School, we've come a long way since we were first established in 1823. 

We were the first school in Maine to implement a  1-1 iPad classroom integration initiative, and we take pride in staying ahead of the curve when it comes to preparing our students for the demands of the global, connected workforce. Whether we're expanding our already expansive curriculum, or embarking on a dual-enrollment agreement with a local college: Our pioneering and innovative spirit just gets stronger with each passing century.

We embrace the truth that everyone learns differently.

We pride ourselves on our flexible, tailored approach to academics. Our curriculum puts each learner's individual needs, goals, and interests front and center. And with our small class sizes, wildly supportive faculty and staff, and personalized approach to academics you're never lost in the crowd here.

We also know that no one journey to success after high school is the same. That's why Foxcroft Academy is proud to provide numerous pathways to career and post-secondary readiness, whether students are pursuing a 2 or 4-year college, the military, or the workforce after graduation. 

Students at Foxcroft Academy can choose from more than 150 course offerings, including college prep, Advanced Placement (AP) and the globally-recognized International Baccalaureate® program. We've also forged many community partnerships and dual-enrollment agreements with Maine colleges and universities to ensure that our students have access to a world of learning experiences.

A small school with global possibilities.

Today Foxcroft Academy has an enrollment of 425+ day and boarding students from 16 Maine communities and over 20 countries.  We're proudly accredited by the New England Association of Schools & Colleges and a member of the Independent School Association of Northern New England, the College Board, and the National Association of Independent Schools. 

Our location is far from ordinary, and exactly where you want to be.

Our scenic campus in Dover-Foxcroft offers boarding and day students a close-knit community setting, state-of-the-art facilities, and modern well-appointed dorms and classrooms. Here under the clear Maine skies, Foxcroft Academy gives you all the fresh air and perks of friendly small-town living that you could ask for, all just 4 hours by car to Boston. And with access to the surrounding pristine lakes, mountains, rivers, and woods of Maine's Highlands, we're perfectly situated for year-round New England adventures.
