MAINE CENTRAL INSTITUTE: THE MCI DIFFERENCE

Founded in 1866, MCI engages a multicultural student body with diverse abilities and interests in a rigorous and comprehensive college and career preparatory experience. In a safe and nurturing environment, students develop self-esteem, academic skills, and social responsibility to be thoughtful global citizens and lifelong learners.  

Real-world work and innovation—students take courses and conduct experiments with science, technology, engineering, and mathematical (STEM) companies.  They engage in active learning and problem-solving, not simply textbook theory, and learn the applied skills that will help them to become experts in a variety of fields.

Somerset Career & Technology Center  is a career technical school focusing on computer technology as well as emergency medical technician training (first responders).  They provide courses on MCI campus. We also have students enrolled in college courses. 

We also have a partnership with Cianbro, a Fortune 500 company located in Pittsfield that is involved in all aspects of construction, design, and project development.  Cianbro comes to campus and teaches courses. With our two 3-D printers in our science labs—labs which were designed by MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology)—this has been a most rewarding learning experience for students.

In the summer of 2020, we will be offering advanced aeronautical engineering courses where students (Grades 7-12) learn from an airfield with real airplanes and equipment, and, if they choose, may enter flight school to learn how to fly an airplane. Take a look at the Pittsfield Airport

MCI has the best ballet program in North America, and the music and art programs have won national competitions year after year.

    1. Ballet

    2. Music:

a)       Jazz

b)     Classical

In 2020-21, we will be opening a 7th and 8th grade program as well, for there is an international demand to begin the aforementioned programs in STEM and the arts even earlier.

Finally, as an Advanced Placement (AP) school with a rigorous college preparatory program, we offer concurrent college courses with several college partners.  Students can earn college credits while attending MCI. Some of our past partners in this program for highly advanced students are The University of Maine,  Kennebec Valley Community College, and Colby College.
