Counselor Getaway

COA Classroom

Counselor getaway: July 7-11, 2015

College of the Atlantic invites college counselors to visit our campus and get to know the college that has appeared on more top ten lists of 'Most Environmental,' 'Most Green,' and 'Most Sustainable' colleges than any other school.

We invite you and your family to our campus in Bar Harbor, Maine. For five days you will enjoy complimentary meals and lodging in our newest (and greenest) residence halls. For a few hours each day, you and the other visiting counselors will tour COA's facilities (including our organic farms) and learn about our unique educational approach: human ecology. Family members can explore Acadia National Park, Bar Harbor, and the surrounding area on their own, and there will be plenty of free-time each day for you to relax and explore Mount Desert Island with your family.
