Welcome to Gould Academy
I am delighted that you have chosen to learn more about our school. While you will certainly find our website informative, I invite you to visit our close-knit community in beautiful Bethel, Maine. When you step onto our welcoming campus you will witness first-hand how our small class sizes and strong Advisory Program provide our students with the opportunity to develop a growth mindset and strong thirst for exploration.
Our talented administrators, faculty, and staff are deeply committed to making sure that our students don’t have to choose between this OR that, but rather have the opportunity to do this AND that. In addition to engaging in challenging academic programs that prepare our graduates for placement in competitive colleges and universities, our students capitalize on all that we have to offer. Whether they are traveling internationally to explore the cultures of such countries as Spain, Tanzania, Ecuador, or China as part of our Four Point Program or effectively using state-of-the-art interactive video conference technology to participate in our partnership with the Manhattan School of Music, our students do it all!
We are a school that passionately embraces the outdoors and we take full advantage of what each season has to offer. While many communities hesitate to go outside during the winter, our school actively embraces the colder months. Our students participate in the many outdoor activities that Gould has to offer. These include but are not limited to the eight-day winter camping trip in the White Mountains that students take during their junior year and our exceptional and vast number of On-Snow Programs that take place just six miles from campus at the Sunday River Ski Resort.
Thank you for your interest in Gould Academy and I hope to see you on campus in the near future.
All the best,
Head of School
