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 4th, 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.
