College Credit Plus 2018-2019 Informational Meeting

January 4, 2018

There will be a meeting to learn about NC’s College Credit Plus Program for the 2018-2019 school year on MONDAY, JANUARY 22 at 6:30 pm in the cafeteria.  Mrs. Welch will be presenting the benefits and potential risks, available courses and colleges, as well as the paperwork needed to participate.  We ask that all interested students attend with a parent to ensure that you have a clear understanding of the program.  Local college reps will also attend so you can talk to them about their courses and application process.  This program expects that the students are the driving force behind their participation, not the parent, and students are treated as college students by the colleges.

 

CCP is a program that allows students to take college courses while in high school, earning dual high school and college credit for each course.  Students apply to the college(s), send paperwork to the state to demonstrate their intent to participate in the program, and apply for the funding.  Students who complete the entire process can earn free tuition for the classes (paid by the state) and free textbooks (paid for by NC).  Currently, NC offers Introduction to Psychology and Composition I on our campus during the school day, or students can take on-campus or online courses from a variety of participating schools.

 

We look forward to seeing you on the 22nd.
