The CCLC partners with Calais High School to offer an accredited course of study for students in the Cobscook Program. Cobscook students are enrolled in eight courses each year, which are fully aligned with the Maine Learning Results and the national Common Core Standards.
Our program is highly influenced by methods of experiential education, which is focused on direct experience followed by focused reflection. Experiential education can be found in outdoor education programs, environmental education programs, cooperative education, and service learning projects, all of which are woven into the Cobscook experience. Cobscook students find themselves engaged in projects on the CCLC campus and around the community, while also focusing on core academic skills.
Students may currently choose to participate between one and four years in the program. Cobscook offers a rotating slate of courses that changes depending on the year, listed below. Please be in touch to learn more about the current curriculum.
