Current students in grades 6 - 11 who are interested in participating in College Credit Plus (CCP) next school year are invited to attend a mandatory CCP information session on Wednesday, December 4, at 6:30 p.m. at Westerville South High School (303 South Otterbein Avenue).
The CCP Program allows eligible Ohio pupils in grades 7 - 12 to earn college and high school credit through the successful completion of college courses. To partake in CCP for the 2020-2021 school year, which will include the 2020 Summer Term, students and their families who are participating in CCP for the first time must attend this mandatory informational meeting. A panel conversation that will include students participating in CCP, CCP instructors, and college representatives will be featured as part of this informative meeting.
Students interested in CCP (which includes, but is not limited to, specialized programs such as the John Glenn Internship as well as CCP courses offered on a student’s high school campus) must demonstrate college-readiness and be accepted by the college/university they wish to attend. Each college/university has their own GPA and standardized test minimums. Academic Advisors from Columbus State Community College, Otterbein University, The Ohio State University, and Ashland University, will be available to discuss opportunities on their campuses after the presentation.
In addition to attending the informational meeting, pupils and families must complete and return an Intent to Participate Form to their high school counselor by April 3, 2020 in order to participate during the 2020-2021 school year. Intent forms will be available at the information session on December 4.
Current CCP students will be able to review a refresher presentation online and are not required to attend the annual information session again. Current CCP students must also return an Intent to Participate Form by April 3, 2020 to their school counselor to participate during the 2020-2021 school year. Additional details, including the link to the online presentation and intent form, will be sent to current students and families via email on December 9.
