Open House

The Center for Teaching and Learning’s next open house will be held in October, exact date to be announced.  Any and all members of the mid-coast community are cordially invited to tour the school, meet the faculty, and ask questions about CTL’s program.

CTL opened its doors on Cross Point Road in September, 1990, under the direction of educator Nancie Atwell. The school is accredited through the New England Association of Schools and Colleges and has state and federal tax-exempt status as a non-profit corporation. Tuition is approximately one-third that of other area independent schools, and generous tuition assistance is available. CTL serves up to 80 children in grades K-8 in five groupings: K, 1-2, 3-4, 5-6, and 7-8.

CTL is an award-winning school, with a faculty famous for great teaching. The program is challenging and interesting, the building is beautiful and inviting, and the students are motivated and high achieving.

CTL’s graduates are successful at all kinds of high schools, from Lincoln Academy, Wiscasset, Boothbay, and Morse; to Waynflete, North Yarmouth Academy, Kents Hill and Hebron Academy; to Phillips Exeter, Phillips Andover, St. Paul’s, and Walnut Hill.

CTL is also a demonstration school, training teachers from across the United States through a combination of internships, seminars, published writing by the faculty, and professional DVD’s. CTL’s philosophy and methods are an invitation to other educators to look with new eyes at what is possible for their schools and students.

Our community open houses provide the public with a chance to see how the school is organized, review its resources, and talk with the faculty. If you wish to visit CTL at another time, please call Maggie Limm, our school manager, to schedule a day to attend our all-school morning meeting, 8:30-8:50 a.m.

Please call the school for additional information at (207) 882-9706.
