Academic Advantages


Prepare to succeed in American universities

Maine high schools provide you with the tools you’ll need to succeed at America’s elite colleges and universities and in the wider world. Smaller class sizes, engaged discussion, advanced placement courses for college credit, and numerous opportunities to learn valuable leadership skills through extra-curricular activities are just some of the reasons why Maine high schools consistently rank among the top in the nation.

Benefit from small class sizes and individualized attention

Maine schools offer small class sizes which maximizes student-teacher interaction. You are encouraged to take a proactive role and participate in classroom discussion and hands-on learning projects.  The individualized attention that you’ll receive helps to build self-confidence and analytical thinking – two attributes that are critical to success – and clarify your unique strengths and ambitions for the future.

Gain real-world experience through internships

Many Maine schools offer opportunities to obtain internships, often to earn additional academic credits or in combination with course requirements. Internships allow you to gain valuable experience working in the real world and connect with the larger local community.  Having internship experience along with a strong academic record provides a major advantage in the job market after you graduate.
