Gould Academy is more than a 9- 12 independent college prep school.
It’s a place where students participate actively in shaping their education by taking advantage of opportunities that extend beyond the classroom.
The result is a co-created, individualized educational experience with active mentoring through multimodal learning.
These modalities include experiential learning and international travel through Gould’s Four Point Program, partnerships with outside resources like Gould’s distance learning partnership with the Manhattan School of Music, and Gould’s IDEAS Center where students collaborate, design and build their ideas and put them into action.
At Gould students are both supported and challenged as they discover and foster their own interests in a creative and disciplined manner.
Located in Bethel, Maine, Gould students have the multiple advantages of living in a lively New England village with access to Sunday River Ski Resort.
With structured athletic on-snow programs, avenues for recreation, and opportunities to appreciate the natural world, Sunday River is an important learning venue for all students.
In an environment that values both individuality and community, Gould students earn the confidence, self-direction and capacity for global thinking that equips them for purposeful lives of active citizenship and self-defined success in our world.
