The Alternative Education Department at Lincoln Academy, located down Academy Hill and just off campus, supports students of all backgrounds, abilities and aspirations with their educational experience during and after high school. Our caring and dedicated teaching staff work to provide individualized programing and mentoring in a variety of ways.
The Alternative Education Program:
Started in 1991, it stands as one of the longest successfully operational alternative education programs in the state of Maine. The philosophy of the Alternative Education Program at Lincoln Academy is to provide a positive learning environment for students for whom the traditional high school classroom is not a good fit. Our program is based on the “Empowerment Model” that is designed to help students assume primary responsibility for their own education while providing them with a caring, nurturing, and highly individualized educational experience. The Alternative Education Program primarily serves 11th and 12th graders.
The Alternative Education Department is a part of Lincoln Academy and therefore is open every school day. Our hours of operation are from 7:45 A.M. to 5:00 P.M. Monday through Friday 7:30 am – 3:00 pm.
