Cumulative records are maintained for students who attended CC from the late 1880’s to present day. Records for each CCS school the student attended may include a listing of classes completed, grades, test scores, immunization records and graduation status.
Cumberland County Schools prepares its students to take the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) as a means to measure their academic preparedness for post-secondary studies. Most colleges use the SAT as part of their admission process. The SAT measures a student’s academic skills that have been developed over a period of time, not just during their high school years.
College expense can be a daunting obstacle when planning for post secondary education. Find out more information about applying for scholarships on the Counselors Website.
