Gould Academy Photo #1
  • 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.
