The Elementary School at Chewonki is an intentionally small, independent school for children in grades 3-7 (expanding to grade 8 in 2018), that models the best in innovative education, integrated academic programs, and experiential learning.
Extending our 100-year tradition of educating children and young adults in the outdoors, Chewonki has designed our place-based elementary program informed by current research that reflects best practices for high-impact teaching and learning.
The Elementary School at Chewonki is accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges and is a State of Maine Approved Private School.
