Watershed School to host open houses in Lincoln and Waldo counties
Camden — Watershed School, an independent high school located in Camden, will expand its outreach programs to the Damariscotta-area with an open house Saturday, Oct. 19 from 4 to 6 p.m.
The informational gathering will take place at the home of one of Watershed’s juniors, Ben Moon-Black, at 73 Bristol Road, Damariscotta. All those interested in attending are asked to RSVP by Oct. 14 to hosts Jean Moon or Vicki Black at (207) 563 - 5948 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
An additional Open House is scheduled for Nov. 16 to be hosted by another Watershed family, that of sophomore Leslie Ryan, at 43 High St., Belfast.
Interested parties may visit Watershed’s website at watershed-school.org or call (207) 230-7341 for more information.
The school has initiated a van service to shuttle students to home, school, or extra-curricular activities. Residents of Belfast, Damariscotta and other areas at a distance from the Camden campus are welcomed to consider Watershed School, which is committed to supporting families with transportation restrictions. Increasingly, the school attracts students from a wider geographic area including Belfast and Monroe to the North, Union and Hope to the West, and St. George, Rockland, South Thomaston, Waldoboro and Damariscotta to the south.
At each open house, visitors will have the opportunity to meet Head of School Will Galloway as well as a number of faculty, students and parents. Watershed is an independent high school serving the Midcoast region of Maine.
“A Watershed education is built on the principle that exceptional individual growth develops out of strong teacher–student relationships within the context of a close-knit school community. Faculty concentrate on knowing each student’s learning style, interests, past educational experiences, and future aspirations so they can effectively help develop each student’s full potential,” says Phil Gerard, founding director.
Graduates of the high school have been accepted into some of the most selective and respected colleges and universities in the country, including Georgetown, Tufts, Wellesley, Rhode Island School of Design, Oberlin College, and many others.
Watershed is accepting applications for the 2013-2014 academic year. For more information about the application process visit watershed-school.org or call (207) 230-7341.
