Director of Admissions

The Meeting School was founded in 1957 by three families who visualized a school where Quakerism could be a way of life, working together as a community and where students could become inner directed. The school is a co-educational boarding and day school - and working farm - for students in grades 9-12. This school is best suited for students who are bright, self-disciplined and have struggled with traditional learning environments.

The Meeting School is accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges and is a member of the Friends Council on Education, National Association of Independent Schools, the Independent Schools Association of Northern New England, Small Boarding Schools Association and the National Coalition of Alternative Community Schools.

Students and faculty live and work together in five faculty houses on a working organic farm, complete with cows, sheep and chickens. Chores are shared by all students and rotated on two-week shifts. Learning is hands on and part of the experiential program.

Academics include traditional subjects including math, history, science, literature, the arts and Spanish, with a study hall offered every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

Students also participate in "Intersession", an annual independent study project. Each student chooses an area of special interest to them, researches, designs and creates the project, and participates in it fulltime for four weeks. The project might be an internship, travel, a service project, or any other educational opportunity that they can participate in full-time for four weeks.
