About Hebron Academy
Hebron Academy is a small, independent, boarding and day school for boys and girls in grades six through postgraduate. Founded in 1804, Hebron serves students from 25 countries and 18 states in a rigorous college-preparatory education. Students are challenged and inspired to reach their highest potential in mind, body, and spirit through small classes, individual attention, and a friendly, respectful atmosphere. Faculty and students live and work closely together on a 1,500 acre campus located on the eastern edge of Maine's White Mountains. At Hebron, we welcome and support individuality, respect for differences, and the value of each person's contribution. We work at instilling intellectual and moral discipline through structure and accountability to high standards. We honor and promote a unique awareness of tradition, place, and environment.
