What do you want out of high school? How will you plan your journey? At Gould, we can help you blaze your own trail and follow your passions, whatever those may be. Our location in the White Mountains of western Maine gives us a unique outdoor classroom right at our doorstep. Our online learning component gives flexibility to skiers and freethinkers alike.
Want to explore robotics with the school’s Navy-class REMUS submarine in the local pond? Maybe you’d like to explore the school’s 40 kilometers of trails on your mountain bike or build your own skis in the IDEAS Center. Or you could travel to China, Ecuador, Peru, or Tanzania with the Ninth Grade Four Point immersion experience.
Gould is a small, co-ed, independent boarding school where faculty do their best to say ‘yes’ more than they say ‘no,’ where students have flexibility to try new things in new ways. Here, students celebrate each other, take risks, experiment, because we know that education is about the journey, about being in the NOW. We celebrate the creative process, not just the outcomes. Students thrive in Gould’s college prep setting thanks to close, collegial relationships with their instructors and counselors, and a vast network of alumni and visiting professionals who come to campus and work with students each and every year.
Gould Academy guides students to be creative, courageous and resilient and to lead lives of fulfillment and purpose.
Gould Academy is more than an 8-12 independent college prep school. It’s a place where students actively participate in their education by taking advantage of opportunities that extend beyond the classroom. Students grow through experiential learning, international travel, arts workshops, service projects, and independent study in Gould’s Four Point Program.
Other highlights include Gould’s partnership with the Sunday River Ski Resort, which is only 10 minutes away, the partnership with the Manhattan School of Music, and the unique academic opportunities offered in the Marlon Family IDEAS Center where students collaborate, design, and build their ideas and put them into action.
