The Success of Customized Learning in Maine

AUGUSTA – Customized learning is an educational model whereby students can enroll in the school which best meets their needs and interests. In this case study, you will meet three Maine families who have sought out customized learning for their own children and have managed, despite limited options, to find models that suit their students’ unique strengths and weaknesses.

This is the second study of a three-part series examining customized learning in Maine. The first study, “The Past and Present of Customized Learning in Maine,” showcases Maine’s rich history of customized learning opportunities through town academies and explains the current need for more options given the ever-present “Demographic Winter” our state is now experiencing. The third study will lay out a policy roadmap to customized learning for all of Maine’s children.
