EARN COLLEGE CREDITS IN HIGH SCHOOL in the CCP PROGRAM
Through the College Career Pathway (CCP) Program at BEHS students can take college equivalent courses right here at BEHS during the regular school day. Like AP courses, CCP courses at BEHS allow you to earn college credits while you are in high school. It's a great way to get a jump start on college education. And the college credits earned through CCP courses are good at any CT State College or University, including UCONN, CCSU, SCSU, ECSU and WSCU. Many other colleges are likely to accept them as transfer credits as well.
Like AP courses, CCP courses at BEHS are “equivalent” to courses offered at the college level. Taking these courses in high school help you meet a variety of college level requirements, such as pre-requisites for various majors, and general education or distribution requirements.
Since you may have to take a number of these courses in college anyway to meet requirements of your college program or major – the CCP program offers you a chance to get ahead in your studies. Going to college with credits "in hand" and pre-requisite course requirements met opens up possibilities of taking elective courses that really interest you. Or you can explore some of the many new subject areas you will encounter in college. Either way, getting through required and/or distribution courses before you get to college is a smart idea.
Tunxis Community College (TXCC) is Bristol Eastern's partner in the CCP Program. Upon successful completion CCP classes you'll receive a transcript from TXCC showing that you've taken and passed the Tunxis course that is equivalent to the CCP course you took. It will also show the college credits you've earned; credits which are transferrable to most colleges. Students who complete a CCP Pathway can earn up to 13 college credits before graduating from high school.
Ask your guidance counselor about how to sign up for the CCP program, and how it can benefit you.
