The Turrets at College of the Atlantic













The College of the Atlantic, in Bar Harbor, on beautiful Mount Desert Island, Maine


   Here on Mount Desert Island, Maine, and in the surrounding mainland communities, we are fortunate to have an abundance of educational resources in our specific region. There are many quality elementary schools, three high schools, adult education programs, an excellent small college, and a campus of the University of Maine in Ellsworth.

   Because not every town has a high school, these towns pay tuition to the selected secondary school. Families can choose any of these high schools, or any other accredited school in the state. The amount of tuition paid is restricted only to what the town would pay to attend one of these three high schools. For example, if the tuition paid to MDI High School is $6,000 per year, you'll get that stipend if you attend Carrabasset Valley Academy, but you'll have to find the rest of the $41,600 tuition on your own.

   There are two regional school administrative districts in Margo Stanley Real Estate's primary market area.


   On Mount Desert Island, serving the towns of Bar Harbor, Mount Desert, Southwest Harbor and Tremont, as well as Trenton, and the outer islands of Frenchboro, Cranberry Isles and Swan's Island, is the Mount Desert Island Regional School System (MDI RSS).

   Regional School (RSU) Unit 24 serves the communities of Eastbrook, Ellsworth, Franklin, Gouldsboro, Hancock, Lamoine, Mariaville, Sorrento, Steuben, Sullivan, Waltham, and Winter Harbor.

   Additionally, courses are offered by Acadia Senior College, Mount Desert Island Adult Education, College of the Atlantic, Ellsworth/Sullivan Adult Education, and the Island Montessori School.
