The Taft School Photo - More than a century has passed since Mr. Taft founded our school. While the world and the school have changed dramatically, his fundamental values endure: work hard, without regard for public acclaim; develop all your talents: academic, artistic, and athletic; and most importantly, give of yourself to others.
Hyde School - Bath, ME Photo - Located in the quaint and historic shipbuilding city of Bath, Maine, on the Kennebec River, the 145-acre Hyde-Bath School campus was founded in 1966. Year-round, students and faculty enjoy miles of wooded running, bicycling, and cross-country skiing trails that extend beyond the campus.
Proctor Academy Photo - Proctor`s campus includes over forty-five buildings, twenty small dormitories, its own privately owned and operated ski hill, state of the art classrooms and art facilities, 3,000 acres of forest and ponds surrounding beautiful natural and synthetic playing fields that are tucked against Ragged Mountain`s south slope.
Brooks School Photo - Come visit our beautiful 251 acre campus located on the shores of Lake Cochichewick.

St. Johnsbury Academy Photo - Through the Colwell Center for Global Understanding at St. Johnsbury Academy, our students are exposed to many opportunities to travel abroad.

Worcester Academy Photo - Worcester Academy is a place where life takes an interesting turn. It's called the real world, where success doesn't always come easy, but it's worth the extra effort.
Rock Point School Photo - Yoga and Mindfulness class helps students start the day focused and energized.
Rectory School Photo - Rectory students participate in hands-on learning that moves beyond finding the answer and digs deeper. Rectory students don't just know, they do.
Applewild School Photo - Art, shop, band, chorus, and drama are just as essential to an Applewild education as math, social studies, science, and language arts. We recognize that the arts are an integral part of every child`s emotional and intellectual development, so we`ve created spaces where our students have the opportunity to actively create and express themselves.
