Facilities and Location

Our playgrounds, fields, and trails are also our classrooms. From early childhood through twelfth grade, students enjoy our state-of-the-art school buildings set on 75 acres in rural Freeport.

We measure our classrooms in acres instead of square feet.

Freeport Campus

Comprised of 75 acres of fields and woodland trails, we are located about three miles from Freeport harbor. Six state-of-the-art buildings are home to our early childhood programs and grades 1-12. Our teachers took an active role in designing the buildings to meet our program needs. Each day-lit classroom has hardwood floors, a sink, and direct access to the outdoors. We are committed to energy efficiency and environmental stewardship, with a vision for a campus that’s a model for a sustainable landscape.

Facilities include a dedicated handcraft building, a woodshop, and a community hall for student performances, assemblies, and school-wide gatherings, as well as events such as public talks, after-school programs, and weekend workshops.

We use our extensive campus for play and study, gardening and camping, cultural events and recreation. Maine Coast has competitive cross-country running and Nordic ski teams; our trails are active across all seasons.

High School

Maine Coast's new state-of-the-art Waldorf high
school building opened fall of 2017 on a 6-acre
parcel adjacent to the grade school off of Desert
Road, just a couple of miles from Interstate 295.
The building supports the high school's increasing
enrollment and the vision to bring the entire
student body together on one campus. Briburn of
Portland designed the new high school to meet
net-zero energy demands, as well as Passive House
and Maine Advanced Building Program certifications.
