I love this school! I have been to 4 schools, and Maine Connections Academy (MCA) is the best. I went to a private school and their parent involvement, and academics looks like a twig while MCA is a literal 180 year old tree.
For a year I went to Lebanon Elementary School, and the teachers were awful, the only thing I liked there was the club Green Team, that I was on. So Lebanon Elementary compares to MCA by Lebanon Elementary being a grub, and MCA being a tree!
When I did homeschooling with my mother for 5th and 6th grade. I wasn't very mentally challenged due to the fact that we were doing the work my sister was doing, but only doing my own math. So I compare Homeschooling with my mom and sister like a bird nest on a tree, while MCA is a tree.
With MCA, it is the only school that has been difficult for me to get an A. Which I love because that makes me want to take bigger courses to get that A, because my mom brings us out for dinner.

Maine connections academy was a school that allowed me to excel and truly reach my full potential. I have a degree of self discipline that many of my peers in college currently do not have. While I did unintentionally isolate myself from my former public school classmates, I prospered acedemically in a way that I don’t think I could have in my former high school. I graduated as salutatorian, thanks to the wonderful teachers that went above and beyond to help me succeed and reach my goals. They offered opportunities for socializing with other classmates and staff (academic summits in various areas of Maine), and although I did not take advantage of many of them, I know people who had an absolute blast going to them. Everyone at this school is really looking out for your best interest. Thank you, MCA!
I have attended Maine Connections Academy since 2016, every teacher or staff member I have interacted with have been helpful and kind. I can tell their really passionate about their students education and are more than willing to help and answer any questions you may have. One thing I enjoy about MCA is the wide variety of course that is offered, it helped me explore and find what my interests and passions were and as well as helped me find a career path.
