Refresh your mind and spirit

Give yourself credit – lakeside!


Educational magic happens here in summer’s relaxed atmosphere. Along with that, some extras make it even more special: delicious, fresh and natural food (did we mention the lobster?), walking trails nearby to walk off the homemade pie, free trips off campus to L.L. Bean, lounging by the lakeside, free career workshops and our bistro night to socialize.

Mark your calendar and register now. Take advantage of a unique chance to develop your professional skills, as well as establish valuable and long-lasting relationships with faculty and fellow students. And don’t forget that lobster!

Summer courses during July

“I encourage everyone to spend at least one summer on campus – a magnificently beautiful serene and spiritual surrounding. Meeting the many people, facilitators and staff who were important in my continued educational journey was priceless. The camaraderie with classmates was incredible. This experience was one of the top ten most wonderful things that I have done in my life.”
– Mary Haskell, Sugarloaf Key, Fla.
