Our Mission Statement:

The Eddy School provides a unique classical and experiential educational experience that allows middle school children to test and refine the best expression of their true nature.

What we Believe

The middle school years are a time for students to test assumptions and make mistakes. The Eddy School encourages these practices in a thoughtful way. Students make mistakes, an inherent part of the learning process, and are supported in learning from them in a safe and encouraging environment.

The Eddy School allows students the freedom to speak and be heard, fail and succeed, explore and grow in a rigorous classical and experiential curriculum. The Eddy School emphasizes: instruction according to the needs of the individual, encouragement of passions, interaction with a multi-age community, and close involvement of the parent. Students practice living happily and constructively within the structure of their external environment.

Classical & Experiential Learning

The Eddy School allows students the freedom to speak and be heard, fail and succeed, explore and grow in a rigorous classical and experiential curriculum. The Eddy School emphasizes: instruction according to the needs of the individual, encouragement of passions, interaction with a multi-age community, and close involvement of the parent. Students practice living happily and constructively within the structure of their external environment.

Students attending The Eddy School work both independently and collaboratively. Teachers act as facilitators. Community members regularly share their expertise and passions.

Faculty and Administration

The Eddy School is administered and primarily taught by Deb Kulik Webster, a K-8 Maine certified teacher with 25+ years of teaching experience in public, private, and home schools, who received the Education Professional of the Year Award from the Bethel Area Chamber of Commerce in 2016.

She received her B.S. from M.I.T (1990) and her M.Ed. from Lesley College (1991). She maintains her Maine certification with regular professional development activities. She homeschooled her own children from birth into middle school and has been an educational consultant for 17 years.
