Foxcroft Academy is committed to developing boarding students who demonstrate self-reliance, independence, and accountability while learning to appreciate diverse perspectives in a safe environment. Our boarding students are not only scholars; they are a member of a living and learning community. Lifelong friendships are formed and the responsibility of everyday life is placed squarely on their shoulders.
Students live in dorms, manage the use of their time, and are accountable for their actions. This combination of enjoyment and responsibility transforms boys and girls into young men and women prepared to handle the entirety of their university experience. Students learn to balance structured and unstructured time. They also get the priceless advantage of friendships based on time spent far beyond the classrooms and hallways of their academic experience.
Located on 125 acres, the Foxcroft Academy campus blends classic with contemporary architecture and includes four modern residence halls, five top-notch playing fields, four brand-new tennis courts, an outdoor basketball court, and a main academic complex. The vast majority of students live on-campus in two large, modern facilities: Herd Hall and The Lodge. Herd Hall, which was completed in July 2009, houses six faculty families and up to 60 students. The Lodge, which houses 36 students and four faculty families, was completed in August 2012.
