Cape Elizabeth Middle School students who are approved to take courses at Cape Elizabeth High School will not receive high school credit.

Middle School students who successfully complete high school courses or other accelerated academic programs may list such courses on the student's Cape Elizabeth High School transcript, but they will not be included in calculating grade point average or accruing credits toward High School graduation requirements.

For the purposes of this policy, a student is not considered a high school student until s/he begins taking courses in the fall of his/her ninth grade year.
