Founded in 1792, the Fryeburg Private Academy is one of the oldest boarding schools in Maine. In addition, this is the first private school in the state, as well as the first American school, which opened admission to the main educational courses for girls! Today it is a private educational institution of mixed type of studying, where boys and girls from 15 to 19 years can effectively and qualitatively prepare for admission to the university, take final exams and get a prestigious certificate of full secondary education.

About 60 experienced teachers work at the school today (all of them are native speakers, accredited to work with foreign students). Teachers are ready to work with students during extra-curricular time, to assign additional classes to once again explain a difficult topic or academic aspect. Teachers not only invest in the students basic, fundamental knowledge of key subjects, but also try to cultivate in them leadership qualities, critical and analytical thinking, to develop communication skills, responsibility.

The studying of students does not end in the classroom – it continues far beyond the academic building. The Special Research Center regularly organizes a variety of outdoor activities: interesting workshops and experiments on biology, chemistry, digital media and environmental protection.

Special curators and career advisors help graduates to determine the choice of a priority university, to fill out questionnaires, to clarify the introductory requirements and properly submit documents. Often the school is visited by representatives of various colleges, universities and higher schools: they meet with alumni, talk about their educational institution, its features, requirements and procedures.
