Summer 2022 Academic Options and Summer Reading at Casco Bay High School

To be on track for graduation, students need to earn at least ten credits a year. Eight credits in English are required for graduation – as well as six in math, science and social studies. We strongly encourage students to do whatever it takes to stay on the path towards graduation.
