MCI offers several courses to prepare students for a changing world. You choose the classes that work for your schedule and meet your academic goals. MCI’s academic and career counselors help you decide which courses are best for you to achieve those goals.
Our instructors design and lead classes that are as rigorous as they are engaging. You have your choice from honors classes and Advanced Placement® courses that give you a solid familiarity of the academic rigor of college. Our academic counselors are available to help you select classes that meet your specific needs.
MCI offers students opportunities for vocational education through SCTC as well as opportunities for taking college courses at local private and community colleges. We also offer JMG (Jobs for Maine Graduates) program that successfully prepares Maine’s young people to be responsible and productive employees, customers, and citizens.
Our career counselors can set you up with opportunities for internships, job shadowing, and job mentoring. They can help you create a resume, prepare you for job interviews, and connect you with employers to help you explore careers that can focus your academic education while you are at MCI.
Patterson Lecture Series
Established by Gregg ’69 and Elaine Patterson, the Patterson Lecture Series (PLS) was created for students to explore themes during the school year in the classroom and by listening to invited speakers share their personal experiences and reflections. All PLS events are free and open to the public.
Before the start of the new school year, MCI selects a theme to incorporate in classroom instruction and extracurricular activities, then invites speakers to campus throughout the school year to speak to students during all-school meetings. Speakers from various walks of life have included Maine Senator Susan Collins, Maine Senator Angus King, Maine Poet Laureate Wesley McNair, US Astronaut Captain Stephen Bowen, local authors, clergy, professional athletes, and community leaders.
Recent PLS themes have focused on integrity, citizenship, and philanthropy. MCI’s theme for the 2019-20 school year is resilience. For more information, please contact the MCI Advancement Office at (207) 487-5915 (email: email@example.com).
