At ACADIA, we believe that our students will not evidence sustained, global, consistent and increased academic achievement without addressing their complex social and emotional needs. We enroll students with a broad range of skills, strengths and potential challenges. Any child could walk through our door, and we are ready to meet their unique needs. ACADIA provides a safe environment with clear behavioral expectations and responses.
We expect our students to represent themselves as socially and emotionally competent individuals, developing critical communication, social, behavioral, and emotional skills necessary to succeed in the larger world. We believe that in order for children to achieve academically, they must feel as though they are an important member of a community, valued for their contributions while being able to value others for their contributions.
ACADIA, A Charter Academy for Developing Independence and Achievement, provides a rigorous, comprehensive educational program for children of the Lewiston/Auburn area in grades pre-k through 2nd, adding an additional grade each year. ACADIA promotes high educational achievement through directed teaching opportunities that are entwined with extensive experiential learning opportunities. ACADIA faculty and staff support the development of the whole child as each student develops academically, socially and emotionally in a safe community that requires personal accountability and meaningful participation. We support our individual students in developing their full potential, while teaching them the value of belonging, connectedness and contribution to our larger community.
