Jaguar Family learns how to accelerate future success

College Credit Plus Info Night 

Written by Mr. Nick McClellan, Community Engagement Coordinator | March 3, 2019

Ask any student, “Do you want to save money and get a head start on college?” The student will probably look at you confused because the answer is obviously, “YES!” 

Sophomore, A. Gillen-Ford, and her grandparents are excited to learn about the CCP program.

That’s exactly what is being offered to our 7th through 12th grade students through our College Credit Plus (CCP) program offered in partnership with the University of Toledo and Owens Community College. 

College Credit Plus is a state-funded program that allows a high school to earn college and high school credit simultaneously at no cost to the student or family. 

“When I found out about College Credit Plus I was really excited because it was kind of like opening your Christmas presents early. College is something I’m really looking forward to and with College Credit Plus, I can get started now,” said 10th grader, Amanda Gillen-Ford. 

Our Jaguar Families were recently invited to get more information on how to enroll into the program during our annual CCP Info Night, presented by our HSAT Office of Guidance and Student Services

During the CCP Info Night, Ms. Mossing, Office of Guidance and Student Services Coordinator, guided students and families through the enrollemnt process and all of the benefits the program has to offer. 

“This program is an excellent opportunity for students to get a jump start on their college careers. It’s been exciting to see participation and interest in this program grow each year,” said Ms. Mossing after the Info Night.
