Gould is a small, co-ed, independent boarding school that is passionate about developing academically motivated students that are prepared for college and helping them to become independent-minded, ethical citizens who will lead lives of purpose, action, excellence, and compassion in a dynamic world.

Our unique location nestled in the mountains of western Maine allows our students opportunities to learn beyond the classroom and enjoy a personalized, hands-on educational experience exploring the world that surrounds us. Within our inclusive community, that balances tradition with innovation, our students are encouraged to think freely and challenge themselves. We believe that where there is risk, there is reward, and our dedicated faculty and vast network of alumni provide inspiration and support to help each student thrive.

At Gould, we understand that each student is unique and education is about the journey. One student at a time, we help each become the best version of themselves.
