Like any parent, you want the very best for your son or daughter.

When considering the many educational options, you’re looking for an exceptional school with excellent academic standards and robust extra-curricular programs to extend learning beyond the classroom, located in a welcoming community.  The school that you choose will become his or her home abroad.

You’ll find Maine offers all of this and more.

Maine has exceptional natural beauty, year round recreational and cultural opportunities, clean air and water, and a low crime rate.

In many ways, Maine retains a small town atmosphere. People here know each other and take care of each other. Maine is a very safe place.

Maine is ranked the most peaceful state in the US (Global Peace Index) because of its low crime rate. Even the two largest cities, Portland and Bangor, are among the top 25 safest metropolitan areas in the US.

At the same time, Maine is a global innovation leader. Businesses have formed successful partnerships with the higher education system and other research and development institutions to make brilliant ideas become realities. Such joint efforts have resulted in groundbreaking advances in the development and commercialization of products in the composite materials, renewable energy, and life sciences sectors.
