College and Financial Aid

Casco Bay High School is committed to deeply supporting every student in the college admissions process. Crew advisors work closely with their advisees, students, parents and our guidance staff to forge a post-secondary plan that makes sense for each student. 

Since 2009, CBHS graduates have been accepted to nearly 200 post-secondary institutions and have matriculated at institutions such as Barnard, Bates, Bowdoin, UC Berkeley, Brown, Colby, McGill, NYU, Oberlin, Smith and Yale - as well as Maine universities and community colleges. Nearly 80% of our graduates have been accepted to 4-year universities.
