The Orme School is ranked 17th in the nation!

We’re so excited to announce that The Orme School has been ranked 17th in the nation by The Best Schools!

The Orme School is one of the most unique boarding schools in the country. Set on a 26,000 acre cattle ranch in the high desert, our rigorous college preparatory curriculum challenges our students to reach their full potential academically, while rounding out their education with a variety of unique electives such as Blacksmithing, Art, Glassblowing, Sustainability, Outdoor Education and Horsemanship. Our students come from across the country and around the globe, and go on to some of the most prestigious colleges and universities in the world.



Backed by a grant from the Burpee Foundation, Sustainability is not just a fad at Orme. It is a way of life! Our goal over the next few years is to grow almost all of our own food. We have a large garden, a 200 tree orchard and table grapes vineyard, and are constructing an 80 ‘x 100’ greenhouse. All of our food is locally sourced and prepared from scratch using preservative-free ingredients.

Is your student ready to experience Orme? We are still accepting applications for fall 2015 enrollment in grades 8-12. Feel free to contact me via email at, or call me at (207) 607-3000. I am happy to answer any questions you or your student might have, and I look forward to hearing from you soon!
