College Search:

Visit www.collegeboard.org, click on “Students”, and create a free account.

Foxcroft Academy participates in a program called Early College for ME. Early College for ME is a transition program for students who are undecided about college yet have the potential to be successful as a college student. As program participants, students will meet with the Director of Early College for ME throughout the school year to discuss college life, high school preparation for college, and the application process. Selected students have an opportunity to take up to two community college courses in their senior year of high school. There is also an opportunity for two students to receive up to $1000 scholarship a year for two years at a Maine community college.

Upward Bound is a program based out of the University of Maine. The Upward Bound program provides academic support to FA students during the school year and an intense six-week educational experience during the summer. Some of the services provided by this program include, but are not limited to, fee waivers on major exams like the SAT, free tutoring during high school, assistance in the college applications process, and information on postsecondary educational opportunities. Students interested in this program will need to complete the application and interview process. Visit the Counseling Services office for more information.
