Empowering Young People's
Educational Journey 



The Mission of the Alternative Education Association of Maine is to provide support, guidance and direction to Maine Alternative Educators and the students they serve. We strive to advocate for all those in Maine involved with Alternative Education. 


"Coffee Hours"

We will be offering a monthly Google Meet where you can join in an open forum to discuss any issue/questions you might have or one's that the host bring to the table. For those of you who remember this was done during the early Covid times and was found to be very useful to those who attended.


The first session will be

October 11th from 2:30-3:30

and will be hosted by

Chris Betts - Ellsworth HS and Cami Carter - Brewer Alternative Ed.


Here is the link to the meeting:

Fall Conference -

The AEA of Maine is also excited to announce a Fall Conference on November 9th at 

U Maine Augusta


Our theme is "Circle Up!"

Again we have heard from you about wanting more time to talk to each other about those subjects that matter to you. The Fall Conference will be based on Circle Discussions at Tables with different themes, where you can sit and have conversations with your colleagues about those topics you are most interested in. This is an Excellent opportunity for you to Network with others who do the unique work we all do in Alternative Education. 

"Alternative education is a perspective, not a procedure or program. It is based upon the belief that there are many ways to become educated, as well as many types of environments and structures within which this may occur."

Raymond Morley 1991
