Students attend Maine Coast Semester for one semester, 15 ½ weeks in length, either fall or spring. All academic classes meet the equivalent of four hours per week except science, which meets for approximately eight to ten hours per week, depending on the length of certain field trips. Classes meet in 55-minute blocks. Academic classes are held Monday through Friday.
Our Weekly Block Schedule
The academic schedule at Maine Coast Semester expresses our commitment to academic rigor and to experiential learning. It is dynamic and full, with class block lengths varying depending on the subject. Long blocks in the afternoons and Saturday mornings give us time to explore nearby landscapes and build skills in the field, the farm, and through our work program.
