College Credit Plus for Students & Families

Buckeye Hills Career Center would like to share with you information about College Credit Plus (CCP) opportunities that are available to our students. The purpose of this program is to promote rigorous academic pursuits and to provide a wide variety of options to college-ready students. The CCP program allows students to take high school and college classes in addition to their Career Technical Lab.

Taking college courses while still in high school offers many benefits; however, there is important information that needs to be considered before making the decision to participate in this program. A major consideration must be given to the fact that students will be required to complete college level course work and therefore will receive a grade on their ability to complete such work. If a student is unsuccessful in the college course, they will receive an “F” on their college transcript, which will also be a part of their high school transcript. A low grade earned in a CCP class could negatively impact scholarship and financial aid eligibility. In addition, before a student can participate, they will be required to meet all of the college entrance requirements established by the institution.

Students who are interested in participating in the CCP Program next year should take the following steps:

  • Attend the informational meeting that will be held at BHCC on March 14th at 9:00 a.m. If you cannot attend, schedule an appointment with your school counselor.
  • By April 1 notify the counselor at Buckeye Hills Career Center if you intend to participate in College Credit Plus next year. After April 1 you will need permission from the school principal or superintendent to participate.
  • You and your family should contact colleges for information, application forms, and criteria for acceptance into College Credit Plus. Some materials are available from your high school counselor and at the college’s website. You must go through the procedures established by the colleges/universities to apply to CCP and to enroll in the course(s). You may have to take a college placement test to make sure you are college-ready.
  • Prior to enrolling in a college class, talk to the Buckeye Hills counselor to determine a course’s equivalency to a high school course(s).

Home School Closings:

Individual home school schedules differ from the Buckeye Hills schedule.

  • If a home school is scheduled to be closed on a day when BHCC is open, BHCC students are required to attend. The home school will provide transportation from the home school.
  • If a home school is dismissed for a calamity day, BHCC students are not required to attend. The day will not be counted against them.
