Our Mission Statement

Located in Lincoln County Maine (central coastal region), the Center for Alternative Learning is a non-traditional program for students in grades 6 – 8 from Nobleboro Central School, Jefferson Village School and Bristol Consolidated School. Our students are recommended for the program through those sending schools or through parent/student inquiries. They come to us for a variety of reasons. Usually they have struggled in a traditional or mainstream classroom, but have the desire and ability to do well when they are provided with opportunities that fit their individual learning styles.

Our goal is to provide students with a path that will allow them to establish a positive and productive connection to their education. Each student’s individualized program is designed to increase success and help the student engage in the learning process. We emphasize individualized, hands-on learning, collaborative study groups, and life skills such as self-confidence, respect, time management, and organization.

Each student’s academic program is planned and monitored using assessments including MEA,NWEA and other rigorous assessments. We consistently have excellent academic success, with students often making more than one year’s growth during each year that they are in the program. In addition to the academic program, students have worked with mentors and gained skills such as orienteering, athletics, mechanics, cooking, gardening, and community service.

The Center for Alternative Learning is a partnership among students, families, community, and teachers where students learn and grow, preparing for the academic and social challenges of high school and beyond. If you would like more information about the Center for Alternative Learning, please call Doug Parcher, lead teacher, or Martin Mackey, principal, at 207-563-3437.
