Good Will - Hinckley we change lives
Programs at Good Will - Hinckley
The Maine Academy of Natural Sciences (MeANS) is a student-centered, staff- guided public charter school designed to inspire and engage students. MeANS attracts a diverse range of students, including those for whom the traditional public school setting may not have been a good fit. Students at MeANS use a more individualized and hands on approach to learning while studying sustainability, forestry and agriculture. On-campus living is available to MeANS students.
Our Campus Living Program serves two purposes. It offers a home to our MeANS students who live too far to commute daily, and it offers a safe environment for students who need an alternative home. Our cottages provide a peaceful environment so students can focus on their studies during the week while also learning valuable life skills.
