- Students may earn high school and college credits at the same time.
- Students enroll and participate in college-level coursework
WHY DO CCP?
- Increases access to college credits for high school students
- Students do not have to pay for courses or textbooks when participating in this program.
WHERE DO I TAKE CCP CLASSES?
- Jackson offers many CCP courses in-house to support students' learning and remove barriers when a student leaves campus (transportation, schedule conflicts, etc.)
- Jackson offers the opportunity for students to earn an associate's Degree through a partnership with Stark State College.
- If you leave the JHS campus, classes can be taken on the college campus of any of our partner schools: Kent State Stark, Stark State, Akron University, Aultman, Malone University, or Walsh University.
WHO CAN PARTICIPATE?
- Students who have met the required score on the ACT, SAT, or Accuplacer in at least one subject area in addition to meeting the admission standards of the college to which they apply (students must apply to the college that offers the course they wish to take even if they are enrolling in an in-house course)
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
- There is a potential for minimal cost to students to participate in CCP if they enroll at a public college or university. Jackson Local School District covers the cost of college tuition and textbooks, and fees may apply if students choose to participate in private college or university courses.
- Students who receive an F or withdraw from a college credit plus course after the 14th day may be required to pay the system and book fee.
HOW MANY CREDITS WORTH CCP CLASSES CAN I TAKE?Students can earn up to 30 credits per year, including high school-only credits or middle school courses. The 30-credit annual maximum includes the summer semester, considered the beginning of the academic year. Students can earn a maximum of 120 college credits throughout the entire program. (OAC 3333-1-65.2)To determine the maximum number of credit hours a student can register each academic year, you must calculate credits by subtracting this formula's high school-only course credits. Each high school course in a core subject area is worth three credits.30 - (# of High/Middle School-Only Courses X 3) = Max # Number of CCP Credits Per YearFor example, if "John Smith" is taking Math, Science, and English in high school (3 courses = nine credits), his formula would look like this:30 - (3 X 3) = Max # of CCP Credits Per Year30 - 9 = 21 CCP Credits Per YearTherefore, John would take up to 21 credits worth of CCP courses for the 2020-2021 school year.
