College Credit Plus
College Credit Plus (CCP) is a dual enrollment program that provides students in grades 7–12 the opportunity to earn college and high school credits at the same time by taking courses from Ohio colleges or universities. The purpose of this program is to enhance students' career readiness and postsecondary success, while providing a wide variety of options for college-ready students, at no or limited cost to students and families. Students interested in CCP opportunities can take classes on a college campus, online, or often within their CPS high school building. CPS continues to expand teacher training and college partnerships to offer CCP opportunities in each 7–12 school building. Program qualifications, timelines and course offerings can be found here.
