Overview

Ingenuity Year is a gap semester program based in Coastal Maine and developed for students who want to take their learning out of the classroom and engage with the world. It’s for students who want to understand who they are as learners and as humans, and who want  to use that understanding to learn better. Our programming was specifically built with students with diagnosed and undiagnosed learning differences in mind.

Seeking students who: 

Want to discover themselves and the world around them. Are curious about the world and their place in it. Enjoy getting their hands dirty. Are ready to spark their joy and find their passion.

Ingenuity Year is a gap semester program based in Coastal Maine and developed for students who want to take their learning out of the classroom and engage with the world. It’s for students who want to understand who they are as learners and as humans, and who want  to use that understanding to learn better.

We engage with real challenges facing real communities and strive to understand how climate change is impacting all aspects of life in Maine.We work with executive functioning coaches to explore who we are as learners and humans and to develop strategies that work. We spark joy and discover our passions, learning how to let go of the voices telling us what we “should be doing.” We transition into independence and adulthood by knowing ourselves and the world more deeply.  

Our programming was specifically built with students with diagnosed and undiagnosed learning differences in mind. However, Ingenuity Year welcomes any student who is interested in understanding who they are as a learner and in developing rewarding ways to continue their educational growth. 

We invite you to smell the ocean air. Feel the wind against your cheeks. Hear the creak of the boat as you pull in the lobster pot off the coast of Maine. This is how we learn. The world is our teacher. Learn differently.
