Maine’s forests, freshwater rivers, mountains, and rocky coastline are the classrooms at Chewonki.
There’s just something about Maine, a state of independent people, authentic character, and extraordinary beauty. It is one of the last truly undeveloped parts of the United States. Over 80 percent of the state is forested and there are 3,478 miles of tidal coastline. Chewonki students live and learn on a 400-acre peninsula with 3.5 miles of rocky shoreline, a small horse-powered farm, and 5 miles of trails.
