Thank you for your interest in the Maine Academy of Natural Sciences (MeANS), Maine’s first public charter high school for students in grades 9-12.  MeANS uses an individualized, hands-on approach while focusing on agriculture, forestry and sustainability. 

MeANS is free to its students.  The State of Maine directly funds MeANS based on our enrollment.  We are currently accepting Intent to Enroll forms for the 2017-2018 school year for placement on the waiting list. A printable version of the Intent to Enroll for those who prefer to submit their intent on paper is available.

Good Will-Hinckley (GWH) offers a boarding component for interested MeANS students.  Boarding students will interview with the Directors of Admission and Campus Life to determine eligibility.  

To begin the enrollment process, please complete either the online Intent to Enroll Form or print and complete a hard copy of the form and mail to:

Lisa Sandy, Director of Admission; Maine Academy of Natural Sciences; PO Box 159; Hinckley, Maine 04944.

Students who are offered a spot a MeANS will have fourteen days to secure their enrollment by submitting a signed Commitment to Enroll form. If, after fourteen days, MeANS has not received the completed, signed form, the spot will be released to the next prospective student on the wait list. 

Please don’t hesitate to contact me at or at (207) 238-4034 with any questions or to schedule a time to visit and tour our beautiful school and campus.
