About Us

Aucocisco School is both a state-certified special-purpose day school, and an after-school learning center that provides students who learn differently with an opportunity to participate in a quality remedial and compensatory education in a caring learning environment, specifically designed to meet their individual learning needs. Our students are school-age boys and girls, with average to gifted potential, who have difficulty learning in traditional educational settings.


Harvey and Barbara Melnick opened the Learning Achievement Center in 1986 to provide supplementary educational services including diagnostic after-school tutoring and special education consultation in southern Maine.

In 1994, Aucocisco School opened its doors to provide full- and part-time school placement as a state-certified special-purpose day school.

Today, Aucocisco School and Learning Center provides comprehensive services to students with unique learning needs, whether they need a full- or part-time school placement, or an after-school program.
