This program is for all students, aged pre-K to high school seniors, whether taught at home or in public/private school. Please call Sharrie at 207-610-5908 to learn more.

Our backpack program operates with generous donations from both counties. The program functions out of the Ellsworth, Bucksport Road office. COVID-19 has created some challenges, but the program will continue using creative and safe measures. All children should have the necessary tools to gain success. It doesn’t matter if your school takes place at home or in a public location.
