CCP (College Credit Plus) Information

Parents and students in grades 6-11 who may be interested in participating in the College Credit Plus (CCP) program during the 2021-2022 school year are strongly advised to review the contents of the CCP Night folder.

The folder includes important program videos and updates as well as information provided by the local colleges and universities.

Even if you have attended a meeting in the past or are not sure about your future participation, the first step to meeting program requirements is to review the information and return the required Intent to Participate Form by April 1. Students currently in the CCP program also are required, with a parent, to review the updated information and return the required forms.
