Memorial Day Weekend:  The next weekend is the last before graduation and includes the Memorial Day holiday.  May 27 – May 29 is full of fun events including a parade, an oceanside cookout, and a special lobster bake in Pemaquid.  Students will also be busy in the week ahead with final exams, academic projects and presentations, and packing before summer vacation.  

We are looking forward to welcoming family and friends to campus for end-of-year events, participating in Senior Week, and celebrating the accomplishments of the 2022/2023 school year.  Thank you to our students, staff, and families for all their hard work and contributions this year!  Please see below for important end-of-year details and be in touch with any questions.

End-of-Year Details

Closing the dorm and moving students out is a complex process.  Along with departure dates (seniors are expected to be out of the dorm by the end of the day on Saturday, June 3rd, and underclassmen the following week, on Friday, June 9, 2023) we also include the process of packing and cleaning rooms, sorting items no longer wanted, supporting shipping of items that won’t fit in suitcases, and ensuring that records, medications, and other belongings are accounted for.  Please work with your son/daughter to ensure that they understand the need to be organized and efficient as we work to complete these important tasks.

For students returning to LA next year, we offer the service of summer storage of items on campus.  Things must be boxed and well-labeled.  For anyone not returning, all personal belongings must be packed, disposed of, or shipped prior to leaving campus.  End-of-year departure plans are now due in Orah.

Graduation is Friday, June 2.  You can view a full list of end-of-year events at the link below.  Please be in touch if you are making travel plans and have any questions:

ASVAB Test: Thursday, May 25th 11:30-2:30
The Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) is a multiple-aptitude test that measures developed abilities and helps predict future academic and occupational success in and outside of the US military. It is administered annually to more than one million military applicants, high school, and post-secondary students.  It is a useful test for undecided students or students who want to explore multiple career options beyond high school that may or MAY NOT be related to entering the US Military. Your results will NOT be shared with US Military recruitment.  The ASVAB test will be a paper-based exam and will be administered at LA on Thursday, May 25th 11:30-2:30. Students who are interested in taking the exam should speak with their school counselor ASAP.  The sign-up deadline has been extended to 5/18. Priority will be given to seniors and juniors.

Bath Tech is offering a FREE summer program for rising sophomores (current ninth graders) focusing on Science, Tech, Engineering, Art, and Math. Students can take part in their choice of programming including: Automotive, Culinary/Baking, Welding, Carpentry, Graphic Design, Electricity, and Cosmetology. Transportation can be provided, please inquire. CAC recommends that students with any interest in attending Voc in the future take advantage of this opportunity. Applications have been given to freshman advisors.

Bath Regional Career and Technical Center will be hosting a Step Up Day for all accepted sophomores on Wednesday, June 7th.  This is a time for students to meet their classmates, instructor, and become familiar with BRCTC. Students will attend morning exams at LA (periods B3 & B4) and then travel with chaperones in vans to the BRCTC.  Vans will leave the LA bus loop at 11:30am and arrive back at LA by 1:45pm. A bagged lunch will be provided. Bussing home from LA is not available once students arrive back on LA’s campus from BRCTC. Please arrange for your student to be picked up or if they have a license they will need to drive themselves home.  Please have your student return their permission slip to the CAC office by  5/31/23.

Scholarships: Encourage your senior to check Naviance often. Additionally the CAC office is running an FLB that meets weekly on Mondays to give seniors time to research and apply for scholarships. FLB’s have been shared with students, but feel free to speak with your senior about this option.
