Providing a highly competitive academic program and supporting our students within it is the foundation upon which we have become known as one of Maine’s premier academic institutions. Through the supports of the learning center, the math lab, and the advisor program, students are monitored at all times to ensure they are on track to achieve their post-secondary goals.
To realize the educational and career potential and goals of its students, Erskine Academy presents a comprehensive range of courses and preparation programs from Advanced Placement to career and vocational training.
With over 175 current course offerings, Erskine Academy’s rigorous academic program is designed to fully prepare each student for success in any career path they may choose. Comprehensive and diverse, the course offerings at EA not only focus on the skills necessary for academic accomplishment, but also attend to the social skills needed to achieve well in life. Preparation for college is most important; therefore, Erskine offers 11 Advanced Placement courses, as well as multiple opportunities to enroll in college courses while still attending EA. AP is an open enrollment program. Honors level courses are offered in freshman and sophomore English, Social Studies, Science and Math courses. Close relationships with Colby College, the University of Maine, and other local colleges and universities allow EA students the flexibility to earn college credit while still in high school. Dual enrollment courses are offered in English Composition, Communications, College Algebra, Anatomy & Physiology and Psychology. Erskine Academy also offers a diverse visual and performing arts program as well as an expansive foreign language department consisting of study in six languages and cultures.
Staff & Faculty
Extensively trained and highly qualified, Erskine Academy’s professional staff members are committed to the success of their students. Erskine Academy’s faculty is known for its knowledge, its compassion, and its desire to see students succeed, and at 9-to-1, Erskine Academy’s student-to-teacher ratio ensures small class sizes and maximal learning opportunities. EA teachers not only learn their students’ names but also get to know about their lives. The small student-to-teacher ratio enables teachers and students to form relationships that carry on well after graduation.
