CCP is coming!

We are excited to continue to grow our CCP program here next year. College Credit Plus allows qualified students to enroll in college coursework free of charge.

This year, Lakewood students are slated to earn 432 credit hours via CCP. They are enrolled with four area institutions of higher learning.

We are having an annual meeting for all interested students and their parents on W 1/22 at 6:30pm in the PAC. We will go over all the college partners and their admission qualifications and deadlines. at 7:15pm, we will host a CCP college fair in the library so families can meet with admissions reps individually.

Intent to Participate Forms are due to the counseling office by M 4/6/2020 for next year. Students in CCP need to do this form each year they plan to participate.

There will be a COTC application session on T 4/7 during 5th period in the SSC. Students will need their chormebooks and SS# to apply. They can register via the form below.

Students that are not ACT qualified will need to Accuplacer at LHS on W May 27th at 12:30pm in the library. COTC will only test those students with submitted COTC applications. They can register at the form below.

All prospective CCP students will need to complete this CCP Survey so I know where they plan to apply. https://forms.gle/kgeSyPALHrQ8tagNA


We are here to help you and your student through this process. If you have questions, ask!
