- There are 12 college-prep and junior boarding schools located throughout Maine.
Thornton Academy has been preparing students for a changing world since 1811. A rigorous and broad-based program of academic, arts and athletic opportunities challenges students to reach their potential in readiness for lifelong learning and productive participation in our dynamic world.
A rigorous academic curriculum is at the core of the Gould Academy experience. Our students are innovators, creators, risk-takers, and complex problem solvers.
The library, in our New Humanities Center, is a great place to conduct research, study, or to talk with friends in one of our group study rooms. The view alone is worth the visit to the library!
With small classes and a hands-on faculty, our students develop the skills, motivation and drive to become life-long learners and leaders.
