Hebron Academy

339 Paris Rd, PO Box 309, Hebron, ME 04238

The school was founded by Revolutionary War veterans as a coeducational academy. Affiliated with Colby College until 1956, it became a boys' boarding school in the early 20th century before once again admitting girls and day students in 1972. In 1991, Hebron's trustees adopted a middle school program for students in grades 6-8. The academy occupies a 1500-acre campus in the foothills of western Maine, distinguished by the work of architect John Calvin Stevens at the turn of the century. The curriculum prepares students for higher education and includes a full range of Advanced Placement and honors courses. Hebron conducts a well-regarded program for students with minor learning differences, and English as a Second Language is part of the repertoire of course instruction. The interdisciplinary nature studies program consists of academic study and outdoor skills instruction. Classroom course work involves specialized, trimester-long English, math, science and history classes. In addition, students choose from extensive course offerings in art and music and a full complement of activities and interscholastic sports. A variety of environmental and outdoor education experiences, including kayaking, canoeing, rock climbing, hiking, camping, skiing and snowboarding, is offered. The cultural resources of nearby Lewiston, Auburn and Portland provide theater, sporting and concert opportunities for students and faculty.
