We are proud to to now have approximately 100 international students call Foxcroft Academy home each year.

Our ever-expanding curriculum offers something for everyone and helps students discover their true passion. Our course guide now includes 21 accredited Advanced Placement courses (including online partnerships), 19 math and science offerings, 27 electives in the Humanities, 25 Visual and Performing Arts course, 15 in-house offerings in Technical Education, four World Language tracks, and a robust ESL program. We also understand that technology drives today’s educational landscape and became the first high school in Maine to implement a 1-to-1 iPad Initiative in 2011.
