Meet Our Maine Connections Academy School Leader

Chad Strout


Chad Strout

Principal Chad Strout joined the Maine Connections Academy (MCA) family in the fall of 2017. He holds a BS degree in secondary education and history from the University of Maine and an MA degree in education administration from the University of Denver. Mr. Strout has 10 years of experience in the educational field as a teacher and administrator. He shares more below:

“Every child has the right to find the best educational experience that works for them. MCA offers a rigorous, enjoyable experience for those students who wish to challenge themselves outside of a traditional brick-and-mortar school. Our school believes that a student can learn anywhere and at any time, and our teachers are dedicated to every student's education and will go the extra mile to help him or her succeed. MCA is different because it can mold to student and family needs, rather than adapting to an antiquated school system.”

In his free time, Mr. Strout enjoys spending time with his wife, daughter, and dog. Together, they like to go to the movies, walk, run, and spend time in the gym. He believes that staying healthy helps keep the mind sharp.
