At the heart of Maine Coast Semester at Chewonki
is a challenging academic program
for students who love learning.
Our classes require commitment, curiosity, participation, and a great sense of adventure. We ask students to take ownership of their education and make connections between what they’re learning, what they’re doing, and the kind of life they want to lead.
Classes are small, averaging eight students each. They take place around tables in comfortable settings or in the great outdoors. Everyone contributes. Students might lead an analysis of text in their English class, teach the solution to a problem in precalculus, or present a research project in Environmental Issues.
