  • Caring Community

    Leading a life of purpose, action, excellence, and compassion is a tall order. By watching our students do it every day, we know it is attainable. Their success begins with the support of and appreciation for community, which is why the “Caring Community” is one of Gould Academy’s core principles, and strongly emphasized in the Tenth Grade Program.
Gould students are fortunate to be at the epicenter of a wonderful community that stretches from within the confines of campus to Sunday River Resort and beyond. The Tenth Grade Program helps students see themselves as integral pieces of this community. It also hones decision-making skills, develops leadership dexterity, and encourages independence.

In addition to community service opportunities with other local organizations and non-profits like Mahoosuc Land Trust, Maine Adaptive, Mt. Abram, New Beginnings, and Maine Veterans’ Home, this program includes regular class meetings to share information and offer students support. Bowling, roller skating, and a two-night trip to Hurricane Island in the spring allow students to challenge themselves and form connections with their classmates in fun, informal settings. Often, friendships forged at Gould last lifetimes.

“Our goal is to support students as they make bigger leaps toward independence, both in the academic setting and as members of the community,” says Program Director Katie Stack.

10th Grade Four Point Program Mission

Gould’s mission to prepare students for leading a life of both purpose and compassion continues through the Tenth Grade Four Point Program, where students work with faculty, staff, alumni, and visiting guests on arts and service projects meant to expand their creativity and sense of civic responsibility.
