CES Site Location Info - Beginning Site Images

McCleery Family Homestead built in 1850 on Route 2 & 4 in Farmington, Maine.  CES's location is perfect to connect students and our community.

Future Site Plans include 4 acres on Route 2 & 4 as well as 18 additional acres in the back accessible from Whittier Road which will allow school busses easy access to the facility on a daily basis.  Future expansion is also a possibility.

What will be on our site?
