One-Week Summer Science Courses in Rockland! [RSU #13 Adult and Community Education]

Need a Biology or Chemistry lab credit for your college program?  Want to explore the spectacular Midcoast at the same time?   This summer, sign up for "Science by the Sea"!

We have heard much feedback that adult education college preparation courses are not offered in many locations in Maine during the summertime.  For example, last summer, a Chemistry student was commuting from Westbrook to Rockland (170 miles round trip) two times a week because there were no other offerings closer to home!  

So, we are offering a unique opportunity this summer:  one-week high school credit science classes, or “camps.”  Local residents can take a short time out from their busy summer schedules to complete their academic requirements in six days; rather than attend a class that meets for a few hours, once or twice a week, which seems to drag on and on over the entire summer. 

In addition, this condensed schedule will make it possible for students from distant locations to stay in the Rockland area while completing their college prerequisites.  Partners or families may want to come to the Midcoast together: while one studies during the day, the other(s) can play!  Upon request, we will assist students “from away” in finding affordable accommodations: this includes budget motels, roommate possibilities, and campgrounds.

See course listings for more details.  Call 596-2018 to register!
