COLLEGE CAREER PATHWAYS PROGRAM (CCP)
The CCP Program is a regionally recognized option that enables students to receive community college credit while completing high school courses. The CCP Program is offered in various career cluster areas for students who wish to pursue coursework directly related to a specific career pathway. This program provides the benefit of earning community college credits in select career and technical education courses through a partnership with the community college system. West Hartford Public Schools is aligned with Capital Community College (CCC), but because the CCP Program is a regional program out-of-state universities and private colleges may also accept CCP Program credit. The purpose of this program is to encourage students to continue their post-secondary education while concentrating on a specific pathway interest. There is no fee required for participation and students do not have to attend CCC during their enrollment in the CCP Program. Upon completion of a CCP course or courses, students may request an official transcript directly from Capital Community College.
Students enrolled in this program are required to specialize in a technical area and take at least one course in that technical area.
