A new partnership between the University of Maine and Thornton Academy in Saco will allow students from the school’s rigorous four-year science, technology, engineering and mathematics curriculum to be admitted into the College of Engineering with sophomore standing. Qualifying students who are eligible for admission will enter with advanced admissions standing with a credit equivalency of up to the first year of the engineering program. Thornton Academy Headmaster Rene Menard called the partnership groundbreaking, noting that the collaboration will extend opportunities for Maine students in STEM education. Also on hand for the announcement were College of Engineering Dean Dana Humphrey and Maine Senate President Justin Alfond.
