2022/23 CCP Purple Sheet

2022/23 CCP Handbook

Overview

The College Credit Plus (CCP) program has been established to enhance students’ college and career readiness and postsecondary success by enabling college-ready students who qualify for college admission to take college-level courses for which they earn both high school and college credit upon successful completion of coursework. 

 Kings High School and several area Institutions of Higher Learning (IHE) have partnered to offer selected courses with the same rigor and demands of the same course taken on a college campus. A limited number of courses are offered on-site at Kings, courses can be completed online or off-site at the local college campus.

Program Benefits

  • Curriculum that may not be available at Kings High School
  • Attainment of college credit and high school credit at the same time
  • College credit and books generally at no cost to the student
  • Additional weight in high school GPA if the course is offered as AP/Honors at Kings

Program Risks

  • Grades received through the CCP program are reflected twice; on both the high school and college transcript. If low grades are earned, they will not be dropped from either transcript.
  • There is increased student responsibility and ownership associated with this program.
  • Grades will affect both GPA’s and can impact a student’s eligibility for admission and scholarship decisions.
  • Credits are not guaranteed to transfer to private or out-of–state institutions.
  • Families will be financially responsible for a course if a student earns a "D" or an "F".
  • Eligibility to play Kings sports while taking CCP classes is a different credit calculation.  Please see your school counselor to ensure athletic eligibility.

  • 5 semester hour college class = 1.0  KHS credit
  • 4 semester hour college class = 1.0  KHS credit
  • 3 semester hour college class = 1.0  KHS credit
  • 2 semester hour college class = 0.67 KHS credit

All Students; whether new to CCP or returning to CCP or taking Engineering only; will follow the directions and links in the CCP Purple Sheet attached at the top of this page.

Academic Advising

Each school offers academic advisors that can work with students to help them pick the best courses and schedule to meet their needs. As school counselors, we can work with the students to let them know what they still need for graduation or help discuss with them career paths or majors for future education purposes.
