Cornville Regional Charter School was the first elementary public charter school in the state of Maine. Located in Cornville and Skowhegan, it opened its doors on October 1, 2012, to students in grades K-6. Currently, the school educates students in grades Pre-K through 10 from approximately 10 Maine school districts from St. Albans to Fairfield and points in between. In 2016, with its 5-year renewal, Cornville Regional Charter School was approved to open a PreK and a high school, both which opened in Skowhegan for the 2017-18 school year. The school’s mission is to create a safe, respectful, nurturing and active learning community where every child is given the opportunity to thrive academically, to be accepted, to celebrate accomplishments and to develop a lifetime love of learning. Its vision is to create a school where learning is built around each student so that all students become engaged learners with relevant and challenging work.
