WA Fund

The WA Fund is our Annual Fund and brings together alumni, parents, students, and friends who share in the Academy’s commitment to excellence. Your generous gifts enable us to focus on the following priorities in order to build students that will build the future.

Our Priorities


We are committed to providing students with STEAM-focused course offerings, hands-on and career exploration opportunities, advanced placement classes, and university courses as well as technology training for faculty to ensure our students are on trend with a progressive culture. You can read our entire Program of Studies here.

Student Life

WA offers a distinctive educational experience. We strive to provide an equally distinctive student life. We focus on our student culture and cultivate the whole student by organizing events and speakers to emphasize the importance of character qualities like kindness, compassion, and respect. Dedicated giving opportunities support the social needs of our students through activities, campus spaces, and character enrichment student assemblies.


Given WA’s location on the coast of Maine, the environment plays a big part in our educational offerings. Your gift helps green our campus and enhances the expertise of our faculty in marine sciences, ecosystems, and environmental challenges. WA collaborates with various organizations such as the Downeast Salmon Federation for learning enrichment.

Athletic Initiatives

From the 1900’s till now, Raider Athletics has served a point of pride and connection for Washington Academy and the community. We continue to improve and update our facilities, fields, and equipment to give students a high school experience that includes a sense of teamwork and purpose.

Scholarships & Financial Aid

Your gift toward financial aid for those at WA and scholarships for graduating seniors are more than a means to an education: they are an investment in talent. To help preserve the strong community at WA and assist others in affording college, consider endowing a scholarship or setting up a planned gift.
