The mission of the Georgetown Island Education Foundation is to support and enhance the educational experience of all students of Georgetown, Maine. The foundation funds programs and resources beyond that of the regular school budget. It is the vision of the foundation to spark positive, lasting attitudes toward exploration and learning through exposure to a variety of diverse, creative and challenging educational opportunities.
A group of supporters of the Georgetown Central School began working in September 2010 to start an educational foundation to support, but not supplant, the educational programs at the Georgetown School. The foundation was incorporated in March 2011.
The Georgetown Central School
The Georgetown Central School ranks in the top 20% of schools in Maine. Beyond the core curriculum, students access:
Art, Music, Computer Literacy, Wooden Boat Building, and Project Adventure, Annual Visiting Artist Program, Greenhouse and Garden, Participation in Spelling and Geography Bees, Math and Robotics Competitions and Battle of the Books, Archery, Ice Fishing, Leadership and Theater Club
