Watershed School, an independent high school located in Camden, Maine, will expand its outreach programs to the Damariscotta area with an open house on Saturday, October 19th from 4pm - 6pm.

The school has initiated a van service to shuttle students to home, school, or extra-curricular activities. Residents of Belfast, Damariscotta and other areas at a distance from the Camden campus are welcomed to consider Watershed School, which is committed to supporting families with transportation restrictions. Increasingly, the school attracts students from a wider geographic area including Belfast and Monroe to the North, Union and Hope to the West, and St. George, Rockland, South Thomaston, Waldoboro and Damariscotta to the south.
At each open house, visitors will have the opportunity to meet Head of School, Will Galloway, as well as a number of faculty, students, and parents. Watershed is an independent high school serving the midcoast region of Maine. “A Watershed education is built on the principle that exceptional individual growth develops out of strong teacher–student relationships within the context of a close-knit school community. Faculty concentrate on knowing each student’s learning style, interests, past educational experiences, and future aspirations so they can effectively help develop each student’s full potential,” says Phil Gerard, founding director. Graduates of the high school have been accepted into some of the most selective and respected colleges and universities in the country, including Georgetown, Tufts, Wellesley, Rhode Island School of Design, Oberlin College, and many others.
