  • MTA HS Construction Campus Updates Mt. Ararat High School Construction Campus UpdatesBy Donna Brunette, MTA Principal As many of you are aware, the high school construction project is underway.  Exciting! A great deal of work has been done since school ended in June.

  • Construction Under Way Construction of the new Mt. Ararat High School is now under way.  On May 31, 2018 the MSAD No. 75 Board of Directors approved entering into a construction contract with Arthur C. Dudley, Contractor/Builder, at a cost of $46,258,682.  This action followed a public bid opening for the project held on May 23, 2018, and a recommendation to approve the contract with Arthur Dudley from the Building Committee. With the current building boom some school districts are seeing the low bids for their construction projects come in significantly over budget.  While Arthur Dudley submitted the only bid for the Mt. Ararat Project, the bid came in on budget and the District will be able to move forward ...

This is an exciting time in MSAD 75! 

Just recently, the residents of the district voted overwhelmingly to invest in building a new Mt. Ararat High School for the students of Bowdoin, Bowdoinham, Harpswell and Topsham.

The new school will be a state-of-the art learning center for our students, with a modern, energy efficient building designed for 21st century learning. Hundreds of hours were spent to ensure longevity and the best return on our investment. This state/local partnership has been decades in the making and we are ready to get going. 
Our committee’s interest is in enhancing the student/community experience. 
We invite you to share in this exciting plan by supporting some of the most visible components of the project, which include:

  • Dugouts
  • Scoreboards for athletic fields
  • Indoor ropes course
  • Other additional unforeseen project costs approved by the building committee
  • and more....

Mt. Ararat will be a centerpiece for our four communities and draw people from all over. With plans to build top notch athletic facilities, the campus will be a high visibility zone. We’d appreciate an opportunity to tell you more about this exciting project, and all the levels of sponsorship possible in a variety of ways. 
Warm Regards,

MSAD 75 Naming Rights and Sponsorship Committee
