High School Programs

Career and College Promise

The Career and College Promise (CCP) initiative gives qualified high school students a tuition free head start on their college and career. This program provides structured opportunities for qualified public, private, and home-schooled juniors and seniors to pursue one of three pathways that lead to college certificates, diplomas, or degrees and provide entry-level job skills. Academic credits earned through the Career and College Promise Pathways enable students who continue into post-secondary education after high school to complete college degrees in less time than high school students without college credit. Visit BCCC Career and College Promise for more information.
