Chartered by the Maine legislature in 1823, Foxcroft Academy (Dover-Foxcroft, ME) was established just a few years after the incorporation of the town of Foxcroft itself. A remarkable history has followed. From modest beginnings in a wood frame building for which the town appropriated $100, the Academy now occupies a 125-acre campus with a full complement of academic, athletic, and residential facilities. Today more than 350 day students are enrolled from the surrounding towns of Dover-Foxcroft, Sebec, Charleston, Bowerbank, Monson, and Harmony, with an additional 100 international students hailing from Canada, China, Czech Republic, Ethiopia, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Russia, South Korea, Spain, Taiwan, Turkey, Ukraine, and Vietnam. Foxcroft Academy is accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges and a member of the Independent School Association of Northern New England, College Board and the National Association of Independent Schools.
