ACADIA ACADEMY will be hosting its first admissions lottery on Friday, April 1rst at the USM Lewiston-Auburn campus. The lottery proceedings will begin at noon. The lottery is open to the public.
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 anticipate the enrollment of students with a broad range of skills, strengths and potential challenges. We must expect that any child could walk through our door and we must be ready to meet their unique needs. ACADIA will provide a safe environment with clear behavioral expectations and responses.
As we develop our culture, we will expect that students 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, will provide a rigorous, comprehensive educational program for children of the Lewiston/Auburn area in grades pre-k through 6th. ACADIA will promote high educational achievement through directed teaching opportunities that are entwined with extensive experiential learning opportunities. ACADIA faculty and staff will 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. It is our intent to support our individual students in developing their full potential, while teaching them the value of belonging, connectedness and contribution to our larger community.
