What is the plan for CoaH New Bedford graduation?

In lieu of a traditional graduation, CoaH New Bedford has opted for a virtual option that will allow us to celebrate all of our graduating Seniors along with all of their family members and friends. We know it’s not ideal, but we’re hoping our Seniors and families will help us make the most of this option.  

The deadline for submitting all content is TODAY, May 29th. The virtual viewing party will be held on June 12th at 5pm.  An invitation, with a link that students can share with their family and friends, will be coming soon.

When will final exams be administered to CoaH NB students?

This school year, CoaH NB students will NOT be taking final exams. In lieu of traditional exams, information about final projects and APEX assignments will be shared by teachers with students.

As always, please know that we remain committed to supporting you to the greatest extent possible during this time. We continue to welcome your feedback on how this process is working or not working for you and your family. 

Sincerely,

Kevin T. Taylor

Chief Executive Officer
