A College-Prep American Immersion Experience

The International Program at Hyde School offers students from all over the world a true American immersion experience. Our private boarding school campus in Bath, Maine is a center for outstanding college-preparatory academics, leadership opportunities, athletic participation, arts and theater, and much more.

Hyde School provides a variety of forums to practice English outside the classroom. These include three seasons of competitive sports; interactive discussion-based school meetings where faculty and students share their thoughts on meaningful and relevant topics; weekly small group workshops focused on self-discovery; and performing arts where students and faculty partner to create an original school show.
