Welcome to the Maine College Access Network, also known as MaineCAN. MaineCAN is a community of college access professionals dedicated to postsecondary success for all Maine students. Our vision is that every Maine student has the knowledge and resources needed to attain the postsecondary education they desire, helping them contribute to the Maine economy.

Our members include nonprofits, high school staff, college outreach programs, funders, and government agencies, all of whom are committed to closing the education attainment gap in Maine.
