Guidance Announcements

The annual College Credit Plus (CCP) Information Night for Northwestern Local Schools will be Thursday, October 26, at 6:30 p.m. in the high school auditorium. This is in conjunction with Parent-Teacher Conferences. A general overview of the CCP program will be presented along with specific admission criteria for local colleges. Come learn about the CCP classes students can take at the high school to earn college credit without ever leaving our building or about opportunities at local campuses. We want to make sure students and families are aware of grade requirements and have enough time to sign up for the ACT or other testing criteria to plan ahead for next year and beyond!
