Summer Programs

MCI continues to closely monitor modifications and recommendations as outlined by the Maine Center for Disease Control and the Maine Department of Education in regard to the COVID19 pandemic. To date, MCI continues to plan for revised summer programming opportunities for students. Our school nurse and administrators are taking all necessary precautions to ensure that safe summer experiences are possible for students. Should a safe experience not be possible, we will update the public as soon as possible.

Bossov Ballet Summer Intensive

The Bossov Ballet Theatre Summer Intensive provides comprehensive Russian training (Vaganova method) with a strong emphasis on technique, pointe, partnering, variation and character. MCI holds a one-week program and a five-week program every summer for student-dancers to refine their skills and participate in a pre-professional ballet troupe.

Students audition for acceptance into the program. For more information, contact Elizabeth Audet at (207) 487-3355 ext. 217 (email:


Students entering grade 7 to grade 12 who attend the MCI STEAM Camp learn about a different theme in science, technology, engineering and math by professionals and teachers who work in that particular discipline. Students have the chance to select from a small number of activities based on the theme of the week. Morning programming will have students participate in large group themed activities with the afternoon reserved for small group activities of their choice.

Summer Orientation & Language Immersion

Summer Orientation and Language Immersion (SOLI) is offered August 22-28 for international students who are new to MCI. SOLI offers two-course pathways to serve students in gaining English language proficiency, and encourage student interaction with various participatory techniques. The SOLI Cup Competition, woven into classes and evening activities, fosters an atmosphere of speaking English, friendly competition, and taking healthy risks.

Summer Credit Recovery (Summer School)

Offered June 21 - July 8, 2021. Summer Credit Recovery is a three-week program that allows students to make up work they may have missed or failed to complete in their core classes during the regular school year. Students who wish to recover credit for the first semester come for the first half of the program to complete assignments that their teachers have prepared for them, and the second half of the program is designated for  second semester credit recovery. Math and science courses are held in the mornings, and English and history courses are held in the afternoons.

Transitions Academy

Transitions Academy is a free program designed to introduce incoming freshmen to MCI. Students take math, English, and MCI orientation classes in the mornings, eat lunch in the dining room, familiarize themselves with campus, and take part in various enrichment opportunities to acquaint themselves with teachers and staff before upperclassmen arrive.
Afternoon activities include making movie trailers about MCI for peers who did not attend Transitions Academy, develop and publish a magazine about the incoming class, creating useful products using recyclable products, and learning hip-hop. Students must enroll in the program to attend.
