Afternoons will be spent outdoors on local hikes or nature walks with ample time to stop and free sketch or paint nature details, landscapes or anything of interest. The instructor will help guide students through their free choice nature drawings and assist with optional watercolor techniques. Most work will be done in graphite pencil but students are welcome to bring colored pencils, watercolor pencils or small watercolor palettes to enhance their drawings.

2nd Annual  Eddy School
Golf Classic & Live Music

Show your support by golfing or sponsoring a tee sign!
Sunday, August 5th

Celebrate the opportunity to give local students who will thrive at The Eddy School the freedom to attend without financial constraints and show your support for allowing families in our community the choice to choose the best educational option for their children . We all know that not every student thrives in the same setting.

The festival starts with an 18 hole golf scramble followed by a BBQ supper and live music. All proceeds will go directly to The Eddy School’s Scholarship Fund for tuition, after school programming, and summer day camps.

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.

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.

In 2011, Deb allowed The Eddy School to begin and is now proud to offer this academically rigorous and enriching experience in service to her local community.
