The University of Maine and Thornton Academy in Saco are creating a program that would allow Thornton high-school students to earn college credits and enter the university's engineering program as sophomores. Dana Humphry, dean of the University of Maine College of Engineering, said he hopes this new partnership will help improve Maine's ranking as 47th among all 50 states in the number of students per capita graduating with engineering degrees.
