Foxcroft Academy is a private preparatory high school located in Dover-Foxcroft, Piscataquis County, Maine. Chartered by the Maine legislature in 1823, Foxcroft Academy was established just a few years after the incorporation of the town of Foxcroft itself. 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. 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.


Foxcroft Academy was named an Apple Distinguished School in 2014.[]

The Academy has 25 Visual and Performing Arts courses: Art I, Ceramics, Sculptural Welding, Studio Art, AP Studio Art, Digital Photography, Yearbook Production, Filmmaking, Applied Media Production, Intro to Theater, Acting in a One-Act Play, Acting in a Musical, Band, Chorus, Intro to Guitar, Guitar II, Rock Band, Intro to Piano, Jazz Ensemble, Jazz Improvisation, Jazz Improvisation II, Woodwind Ensemble, Percussion Ensemble, Orchestra/Chamber Ensemble, and Select Choir.


Foxcroft Academy's 23 varsity athletic teams have combined to win 21 state titles-11 in the past 11 years-and have also won four MPA Sportsmanship Awards in the past two years alone.
