122 Town Academies have come and gone over the past 190 years, and FA is now one of only nine remaining in the state. When you come to FA, you’re not just enrolling in a school–you’re joining a community. Students at FA believe in giving back. Varied experiences in community service teach and model giving to others and demonstrate the concept of community stewardship, ideas that are integral to the fulfillment of FA’s mission.

FA is committed to preparing students to succeed in an increasingly tech-driven educational landscape and was the first high school in the state of Maine to provide an iPad to each and every student. Students passionate about digital arts can choose from a range of courses including filmmaking, photography, and applied media production. We place great value on creative expression and help provide the necessary tools and resources for our students to explore their full creative potential. Whether your passion is for acting, music, fine arts, cooking, traveling, cheerleading, athletics, or the great outdoors, we will challenge you to defy boundaries and expand your skills. Academically, socially, and recreationally, opportunities to engage are endless. Faculty excellence is the core of the FA experience, and the teaching does not stop when the day’s final bell rings. Our highly supportive community of teachers, counselors, coaches, and dorm parents will help you reach your greatest potential. Our caring and dedicated residential life staff promotes a culture of accountability, independence, and self-reliance, enabling boarding students to flourish within the confines of our beautiful campus setting.

At FA, the principle that knowledge is power extends beyond the classroom and onto the playing fields, where our dedicated coaches foster a tradition of hard work, respect, and accountability. The FA athletic program will challenge you to step out of your comfort zone, experience new things, and ultimately build a strong foundation for a rewarding life–personally and professionally.

FA is situated in a picturesque region of Maine and enjoys four distinct seasons. Students enjoy easy access to natural treasures including Baxter State Park, Moosehead Lake, Mount Borestone, and Acadia National Park.
