Coastal Studies for Girls will hold an Open House Sunday, October 23rd from 12-3pm at the Coastal Studies for Girls campus located at 308 Wolfe’s Neck Road in Freeport. Tours of the school, led by staff and CSG alums, will run every 20 minutes. The event is open to educators, families, neighbors and friends who are interested in learning more about the school.
Coastal Studies for Girls is a member of the Semester School Network and provides rigorous academics with an experiential focus and is the only semester school dedicated to marine science and leadership education for 10th grade girls.
Coastal Studies for Girls is located on a 600-acre oceanfront land preserve in Freeport, Maine. Each semester, 20 students come from a variety of schools across the country to live for one semester of their sophomore year in a renovated antique farmhouse on the shores of Casco Bay. In addition to Leadership and Marine Ecosystems, students study an interdisciplinary place-based curriculum of academic high school courses. CSG’s Marine Ecosystems class is an immersion in scientific fieldwork culminating in a public presentation of individual research projects. Many previous CSG semester school students have received national awards for their ground breaking Marine Science research papers completed while attending the semester school.
Coastal Studies for Girls has a few spots open for the Spring 2017 semester and is now accepting applications from 9th grade students for the Fall 2017 and Spring 2018 semesters.
