Notes/School Information:

Message from the Head of School, Mr. John King:

Hebron Academy is a school with a strong sense of community, a lively spirit; a school big enough to offer challenge and choice in academic and recreational programs, yet small enough so students and teachers know each other very well. Most importantly, Hebron is a school where every individual has his or her identity and can make a difference.

When you and your family visit Hebron , what will strike you is the welcome and care that you will feel from all the people who are the school: students, teachers, coaches, staff, and even campus pets. We are sure that you will find Hebron an academically challenging place, but we are equally certain that you will find it friendly and supportive too.

The passion and commitment of Hebron 's exceptional teachers is our greatest resource. Those passions, alive in the classroom, are just as vivid on the playing fields and stage, the ski slopes and ice rink, in the Maine wilderness or on a trout stream, before an easel, or cooking French cuisine in an apartment kitchen.

At Hebron , every student has someone to talk to, to go to with an idea, a problem, a need, or a question. And if you don't go to someone, then, more than likely someone will come to you to ask how things are going. At Hebron , you will know it is safe to take a chance-to risk a wrong answer, ask for help, seek out a leadership role, speak your mind, try something new.

We hold ourselves to high standards of behavior, and we expect that all of our students will answer the challenge of doing the right thing. Knowing that we set limits and expectations is a security no matter how independent you are. You will come to Hebron because you seek to do and be the best you can be. You will be empowered with the assurance that all of us at Hebron are ready to support your growth and development as you figure out who you are and want to be.

Hebron Academy inspires and guides students to reach their highest potential in mind, body and spirit.

Core Values:
Hebron Academy is a friendly community of trust where an individual's word is his or her bond. We instill intellectual and moral discipline through structure and accountability to high standards. Our community welcomes individuality, respects differences, and values each person's contributions. We honor and promote a unique awareness of tradition, place and environment. Hebron faculty models a passion and dedication to teaching and learning. We live by a creed of Trust, Honor and Respect.
