PIQUA — Edison Community College hosted 23 area high school guidance counselors, Sept. 29, during the second annual event to inform counselors of the opportunities available at Edison, as well as state initiatives that impact the college and local school districts.
A portion of the event was focused on the new, state-supported College Credit Plus (CC+) program, which affords high school students the opportunity to complete college courses while still attending high school. CC+ replaced the Dual Enrollment and Post Secondary Enrollment Option Program (PSEOP) formerly offered at community colleges statewide.
“I really try to emphasize to parents that it’s not only a cost savings, but it’s also the level of work that is important for students to experience before heading off to a four-year university,” said Edison President Dr. Doreen Larson. “We provide a safe, accessible environment for students to get their first taste of college.”
Breakout sessions provided the opportunity to explore several career programs.
