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.

2020-2021 Admissions

Admissions materials for the 2020-2021 year are now posted on the documents tab.  We are looking for families who are a great fit for The Eddy School with students for whom The Eddy School is a great fit as well.

If you would like to schedule a visit before submitting the forms, do not hesitate to ask. Parents are welcomed to come for up to two hours. Applicants will need to visit for an entire day as part of the application packet; this can happen before the official documents are submitted if you so desire. 

First round applications are due April 3, 2020. All applications received by this time will be given equal weight. After that, applications will be accepted on a rolling basis as space allows. The Eddy School will have at least three openings for 2020-2021.

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.

"We are sending [our daughter] back to The Eddy for her 8th grade year becasue she thrives there. (She wants to go to high school and college there.) She is challenged, she is held accountable, she has learned how to work independently and how to work well with others...When her 8th grade year is completed, she will leave The Eddy as a well-rounded teenager, ready for what her high school and college years bring."- current parent

The Eddy School

Admissions Open House: The night where I invite current and past families to speak their truth about life at The Eddy School to interested families. And I am reminded of how all of our perceptions are oh so very varied. Tonight I had just finished explaining to a new family how The Eddy School can be too unstructured for some students to thrive when I overheard a current (and alum) parent describe it as a very structured school. Ha! ...
