Mission Statement

Since 1889, our mission remains to provide a home and helping hand for young people and families. The organization has helped more than 6,000 youth from Maine and other states.

Description

We are proud to be the first high school in Maine that focuses on agriculture, sustainability, forestry, workforce skills training and independent living. We offer a unique high school experiences for the active, real-world learner.

The legacy that George Walter Hinckley started in 1889 will continue with a new focus on project-based, theme-oriented learning that will prepare students to live successful lives as they continue their education and career training.

We are located in central Maine on several hundred acres of wilderness, organic farmland and river frontage. We tailor our program to a student's specific interests, introducing them to careers in farming, forestry, sustainability, alternative energy and other related fields. Students gain knowledge and skills through hands-on projects, internships with local businesses, running our organic food farm stand and maple sugar shack, targeted curriculum, joint coursework with the local community college, and real-world experiences.
