Description Boothbay Region High School

Founded back in 1875, the Boothbay Region High School is in a beautiful scenic location - in the cozy town of Booth Bay Harbor on the Atlantic coast, just an hour from Portland.

Today there are about 230 students: they are students of 9-12 grades, as well as participants of AP and STEM programs. The main credo of the Boothbay Region High School is formulated as follows: "We believe that a person must learn new throughout his life, and are ready to begin this process with our students and their families. Our common goal is the creation of a safe and civilized society, comfortable learning, the diversity of academic and extra-curricular activities, the education of conscious individuals, full participants in modern society. " Education in the high school sets its main task to prepare students for independent life in the modern international community: to teach children to communicate with representatives of different cultures and nationalities, to respect others' opinions and points of view, to cultivate tolerance and understanding.

It is these qualities that are the basis for a full-fledged social dialogue throughout the world, serve as a backbone for world cooperation and interaction. Graduates of high school become independent and confident in their abilities, demonstrate maturity of judgments, are ready to take responsibility for their words and deeds.

Boothbay Region High School is working on the Nacel Open Door F-1 Public School Program: its essence is to educate students from all over the world in American public schools. The basic course, as already mentioned, is the senior grades from 15 to 18 years (High School). The minimum duration of study for the program is 1 academic year, from August to June. The program also includes educational institutions in Maine, California, Vermont or North Carolina. Traditionally, lessons start at 8:00 and last until 3:30 pm with a break for lunch (30 minutes, you can visit a cafe or eat lunch brought from home); The duration of one lesson is 45-55 minutes.

The peculiarity of the Nacel program is not only in attracting foreign students, but also in full-fledged, comprehensive, continuous support of international students. Many of them for the first time left abroad independently and for a long time, and the curators of the program are ready to do their best to stay in the country was for them as comfortable as possible. For more than 10 years, the program has been successfully working and confirming its quality by hundreds of students who successfully completed the senior-level program in the US - today more than 500 people study in this system, many of whom choose the course again. Such useful and necessary services are provided free of charge:

  • The support of the local coordinator and the assistance of the regional director for each student and family (their sphere of responsibility includes the host families, comfortable conditions for study and living, the solution of emerging administrative and domestic issues);
  • Highly qualified social staff always ready to help students;
  • 24-hour telephone helpline;
  • Travel coordinator (it is responsible for tracking flights, changes in the travel schedule, organization of transfers and meetings / wires).

Most Public schools in the USA encourage the student exchange in every possible way and take part in it with pleasure: this makes it possible to diversify the cultural environment of the campus, the ethnic composition of students, and make learning more comfortable and effective. In order to study at an American school, international students must demonstrate not only high academic indicators, but also interest and involvement in extracurricular life, participate in events, studios and clubs, support social activity and social projects.
