Overview

For over 50 years, Hyde School has been a leader in the United States for its unique approach to character
education. Our mission – develop character to discover one’s unique potential– is delivered to our students
using several approaches including college-preparatory academics, character and leadership development, and
family engagement.
For students looking for an academic challenge, Hyde offers a comprehensive college preparatory
curriculum, including Advanced Placement and Honors-level courses. Students receive individualized
attention from our experienced faculty and grow the academic skills they need to succeed in college and
beyond.
The cornerstones of our character-based curriculum are the Five Words (Courage; Integrity; Leadership;
Curiosity; and Concern) and Five Principles (Destiny; Humility; Conscience; Truth; and Each Other’s
Keeper). With these core beliefs and shared values in mind, we developed
Five Inner Leadership Deliverables. These create a culture where we support and challenge each other, value
attitude over aptitude, and allow obstacles to become opportunities. Our Five Inner Leadership Deliverables
are as follows:
1. Self-Awareness – students take a deep look at themselves and develop the skills to emerge as
leaders in the Hyde community and beyond;
2. Public Speaking Confidence – students are taught skills to become confident public speakers;
3. Tackling Challenges Outside One’s Comfort Zone – students are encouraged to take risks and
challenge themselves;
4. Meaningful Relationships – students engage in building relationships with their peers and adults; and
5. Family – for students to grow, their families must grow along with them.
Our boarding school campus, located in the heart of the mid-coast section of Maine, offers students a
personalized college preparatory and character development curriculum, while, at the same time, ensuring that
our international students receive an immersive American experience. With access to the ocean and the
mountains, a short drive to Portland, Maine (40 minutes), and access to Boston, Massachusetts (2.5 hours),
students have the opportunity to explore New England as they discover themselves. Hyde students graduate
with a well-developed sense of purpose, a concrete set of values and principles, and a strong sense of
character.
