Ohio’s College Credit Plus program allows students to earn college and high school credits at the same time by taking college level courses from colleges or universities. The purpose of this program is to promote rigorous academic pursuits and to provide a wide variety of options to college-ready students.
Parents/guardians, please consider this program very carefully as this program may or may not be appropriate for your student. During the informational session the following information will be discussed: the benefits and consequences of participation in the College Credit Plus program, student eligibility, earning credits, books, cost of participation, and course scheduling. All students/families who view the virtual session, will be provided an Intent to Participate form. This form must be completed and returned to Chloe Fairchild, school counselor at Whitmer High School, before we can consider your student for this program. After the Intent to Participate form is returned, (s)he must fill out the application on the website for the college/university in which they are interested in enrolling. The college will admit students based on college-readiness in one or more subject areas. The due date to complete and return the Intent to Participate Form is May 1, 2021.
