Please Join Us

We invite you to join us as we approach the 25th Anniversary of Schoodic Institute and celebrate the leadership and legacy of the Dixon family. Fitz E. Dixon saw limitless possibility in a shuttered Navy base, envisioning a vital center for science and learning. Edith took up this mantle and for 20 years championed, transformed, and energized Schoodic Institute into a leader in the response to rapid change in Acadia and beyond. We look forward to your company as we pay tribute to our founders and look forward to the next 25 years of science, learning, and community.
