Foxcroft Academy, home of the Ponies, is an independent high school founded in 1823 on the principle that knowledge is power. Foxcroft Academy is committed to providing students from central Maine and beyond a rigorous college and career preparatory academic curriculum designed to produce informed and active global citizens. Foxcroft Academy will furnish all students with the underlying skills needed for post-secondary success while embracing its safe community and natural environment.

198 years since its founding, Foxcroft Academy exists as one of only nine remaining (from an original 122) private academies that serve the public trust as part of its mission. Today Foxcroft Academy is proud to have an enrollment of more than 400 day and boarding students from 16 Maine communities and over 20 different nations. Students at Foxcroft Academy can choose from more than 150 different course offerings, including college prep, AP, IB , and more. This extensive curriculum represents the core liberal arts requirements, college preparatory courses, advanced placement courses, vocational/technical courses, and an alternative education program. We offer over 20 interscholastic varsity sports and have dozens of clubs and organizations for students to work with and belong to. Learn more about Foxcroft Academy at www.foxcroftacademy.org.
