COLLEGE CREDIT PLUS
Under College Credit Plus, VCS Ohio has partnerships with several colleges around the state to allow students to earn high school and college credit for the same course. A student participating in College Credit Plus is able to take classes online at the partnering college or university, so students do not have to travel to the college campus. Upon successful completion, the student is able to earn both college credit and high school credit for the course. It is possible for a student to earn up to two years of college credit before graduation from high school. And the best part is these options are FREE to all full-time VCS students who qualify. To qualify, high school students must have earned a score of 19 on the ACT or successfully passed the COMPASS college-readiness test which can be administered by VCS Ohio. Qualifying students must also be referred by their VCS guidance counselor. College can be very expensive, so take advantage of this free option!!
