Blue Hill Harbor School is a small independent high school approved by the state of Maine to accept public school students.
Our individualized curriculum is based on the EdVisions education model featuring Personal Learning Plans.
Our vision of the best possible secondary education is exemplified by that developed by the Minnesota New Country School, founded as a charter school in Henderson, Minnesota in 1994.
This school has been named one of the best schools in the U.S., and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation funds the non-profit organization EdVisions, Inc. to replicate its success in other schools.
There are currently over 40 schools using the EdVisions Model from coast-to-coast.
Blue Hill Harbor School is the first in New England.
